Does anyone know why the Surface Pro 3 would not show this icon?

Is the Surface Pro part of a domain?  If so, that suppresses the notification.  Note: this should not mean you won't get it... indeed, I don't it's doing anything other than "pre-approving" and automated download of several gig.  I wouldn't worry about it.

Thanks.  I'm just weird that way.  Whenever I hear about a new version of anything, I just have to have it.

Just FYI:
Can I get my free Windows 10 upgrade even if I didn’t reserve?

Yes. The easiest way to get the free upgrade is to reserve, but you can upgrade even if you don’t reserve.

Once Windows 10 is available, we’ll begin notifying devices that their free upgrade is available. Just open the Get Windows 10 app to schedule your upgrade. Note: Some notifications will go out as soon as Windows 10 is available; others may go out in the weeks or months following.
