Migrating F103 to F4 what can I expect ?

Hello all,
 I've developed some pretty awesome stuff on my STM32F103VET6 and my STM32F0 Discovery (STM32f101rb). I'm able to add a few ifdefs here and there and switch the code back and forth between them easily. 

  I  was getting ready to order some more boards and stumbled upon the stm32F4discovery board and started to look at the specs. For about $2 more a chip I get x3 the power and memory, which I could really use !! 

 So I started to think how easy it would be to migrate between my m3 code and this m4. I looked up the pins and it seems to be pin compatible. But when I use keil and try and make a new project there is no selection for the m4.

  It all boils down to:
   - would my code written for the m3 using std peph work with the m4 ?
   - would I have to buy something to go with keil to get it to support m4 ?

I could just switch to linux and have more support for more devices (i think). Sorry I spend so much time coding and testing I dont really mess with my dev environment so I was wondering if any of you have gone down this path.

 As always, thanks for reading !
