Microsoft announces their Surface Pro 3 tablet

surface-pro3It does seem that the tablet industry is currently experiencing a wind of change this time around, with Microsoft having introduced the Surface Pro 3, which Microsoft claims that it could be the right kind of tablet that can replace your laptop or notebook. Is that possible? Other companies have tried hybrid implementations in the past like Lenovo and their Yoga range, but those are more of an Ultrabook than anything else. The Surface Pro 3 intends to change things for the better, and some have already taken the step to call this the “laplet”.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 will arrive with a 12-inch ClearType Full HD display, run on a 4th-generation Intel Core processor with up to 8GB RAM, while sporting up to nine hours of Web-browsing battery capability, ensuring that the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 comes with all of the relevant power, performance and mobility of a laptop without arriving in a heavy form factor, thanks to its incredibly lightweight and versatile form factor.

Being 30% thinner compared to the 11-inch MacBook Air, the Surface note 3 comes with continuous kickstand that provides the screen real estate and multiple viewing angles that people need for work and play. Not only that, there is also a new Surface Pen which has been completely redesigned with form and function in mind, helping deliver a precise, luxurious drawing as well as note-taking experience with a single click of the pen.

Windows 8.1 Pro would be the operating system of choice here, allowing folks to run the standard desktop software that they are already used to, including Microsoft Office, multitask with side-by-side windows, and use it at work. Talk about enjoying the best of both worlds with the Microsoft Surface Pro 3! Not only that, there will be new Surface accessories such as the improved Surface Pro Type Cover that will transform the Surface Pro 3 from tablet to laptop in a jiffy. Pricing details for the Surface Pro 3 will begin from $799, depending on the hardware configuration of your choice.
