Surface Pro 3

A Device for Doing More

Microsoft Surface Pro 3 wants to eliminate the need for carrying a tablet and a laptop while on the move. It is sleek and light enough as a tablet for watching movies, reading books, or browsing the web and comes with powerful processors which combined with a keyboard cover accessory, multi-position kickstand, and ability to run the Windows 8.1 turns the Surface Pro 3 into a full-fledged laptop contender.

Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Side

Windows 8.1 means the Surface Pro 3 runs full desktop applications like the Office. It comes with a new kickstand design with multi-positioning, which is much practical than the one-position and two-position kickstands offered by the first generation and second generation Surface Pro tablets. The keyboard cover (Type cover) is now bigger, which will make them more comfortable to use.

Microsoft also improved the Pen experience with better integration with OneNote for a more natural note taking experience. Just click the top of the Surface Pen to open a OneNote page, so you can take notes or mark-up documents as soon as the need arises. Your notes are synced with the cloud so you can access them from multiple devices. It also comes with palm block technology that allows you rest your hand on the screen when writing.

Microsoft is also working with its partners to optimise the Surface Pro 3 and the Surface Pen for other apps to take it beyond note taking. Photoshop Creative Cloud is one example, which will be bringing more accuracy and line precision for artists and creatives.
