I've had the i7 512 Surface Pro 3 for several months now and I absolutely love it. I was worried about the hinge but it's lapability has no issues IMHO. The only problem I have is it simply doesn't work if I'm lying down in bed.

It's doubtful the LG will contend. I think the biggest threat is the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro but at close to a pound heavier and inability to detach the keyboard increasing the thickness in tablet mode, I'll stick with my Surface Pro 3 thank you very much.

I think you misunderstand my statement. I spend the most TIME writing in js/coffee (angular.js in particular). RoR is still the backend, but it's serving more as a thin API layer to backend data services. I also probably spend less time writing Ruby code because of better engineering which can be attributed to the language's elegance.

In this same vein, I find technical people to be the worst at talking to C-level people. A good recruiter can really talk you up to the right people which has pretty significant value and can effect your bottom line. Even if you're applying for a job at a company your best friend is working at, if he/she is in IT they will probably do a lousy job advocating for you.
