Surface Pro 3: Meet Microsoft’s Tablet That Will Replace Your Laptop
Just recently, Microsoft released another of its tablet laptops – the Surface Pro 3.
Packing performance in a lightweight tablet, the Surface Pro 3 is lighter, faster and stronger than its predecessor, Surface Pro 2. Which makes you think, what’s really new with Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3?
Surface Pro 2 VS Surface Pro 3
To start with, the Surface Pro 3 is perhaps the thinnest hardware there is to ever pack the i5 Intel Core processor. Weighing only 1.7 lbs., it’s lighter in contrast to Pro 2’s 2 lbs. From the smaller Pro 2 dimensions of 10.81 x 6.81 x 0.53 inches, the Pro 3 comes with a notebook feel with a larger and thinner version at 12.0 x 7.93 x 0.36 inches. Unlike the Pro 2 which utilizes Intel’s Core i5 only, the Pro 3 allows you to choose from the fourth generation Intel Cores i3, i5 and i7. Both have the same RAM of 4GB up to 8GB and the same storage memory of 64 GB to 512GB.
A tablet and a laptop in one
Making use of the Kickstand, an optional Type Cover from Microsoft, Surface Pro 3 identifies itself as a revolutionary laptop with a full-sized USB 3.0 port, Mini Display Port, and a microSD card reader. The dynamic Kickstand allows you to tilt your Surface Pro 3 to have that laptop, laid-back or lounging feel. With a click of their aluminum Surface Pen, start writing at your comfort – paint, takes down notes, and you can even answer those crossword puzzles without problems. With Surface Pen’s 256 points of pressure, writing on the Surface Pro 3 is just like writing on paper with a real pen.
For those who are wondering why Surface Pro 3 is so thin, Microsoft cleverly redesigned its cooling fans to make the Pro 3 look like it is devoid of one. The 2,160 x 1,440 resolution of the Surface Pro 3 has been dubbed by Microsoft as “Pixel Free” in reference to its visual and display fidelity of the highest contrast.
Although you already know how the Surface Pen works, Surface Pro 3 can do better with the necessary accessories that come with it from Microsoft. The Surface Pro Type Cover is perhaps the thinnest keyboard available in the market today that allows you to turn your Pro 3 tablet into a laptop. With magnetic stability to keep it steady, working on your Pro 3 is never uncomfortable even with just your lap as a desk. The 36W Power Supply is a standard must if you need to power up your Pro 3 fast while the Surface Ethernet Adapter meant only for your Pro 3 allows you to connect on a network with ease.
With an estimated price of $799, the Surface Pro 3 will surely hit the market in style with techies and gadget addicts who want to upgrade their usual laptop experience.
