outside of that...I didnt see much of a difference...

Samsung reps don't know much. I'm running Hancom office (what you call MS office type) on my 10.1 2014 right now. There is a post on this board how to get it working. And it's likely it will be available at some point from Samsung apps.

S Pen is what makes big difference for many users. I use it every day, for me Tab Pro is not even an option.

Anyways getting back from bestbuy

the newer 10" device has microsoft office type apps on it. No S pen only on the 12". comes with kitkat faster processor.
The samsung rep said those office apps arent going to work for the older 2014 version of tablet.

outside of that...I didnt see much of a difference...

the open box is at a local bestbuy for me.

So is it worth to spend 400 on the older 2014 model (the newest 2014) 32gb and pay 400 plus tax or get the newest with kitkat for 550?

seems like a lot of $ just for that office suite no spen and higher resolution...

Also the resolution is exactly the same. Basically everything in the Tab Pro and the Note 10.1 2014 edition are exactly the same other than the S Pen and Software version. The Note 10.1 2014 edition should be getting an update to kit kat soon so basically the only real difference is the s pen which is pretty amazing if you're going to take notes. As the other guy said, the office suite is pretty easy to import to the note.

Tab Pro 10.1 has 2Gb RAM.
Tab Note Pro 12.2 and Note 10.1 2014 have 3Gb.

Sounds like I should get the 10.1 2014 refurbished and hack on what I want.

Unless I go for the 12" but that's easy too expensive
