The much-hyped Microsoft Surface Pro 3
Microsoft claims that this is ‘the tablet that can replace a laptop’. That is, basically the same thing they said about the original Surface Pro and Pro 2. Neither of which was able to deliver, and ending up with relatively low market sales. Nevertheless, Microsoft claims to have hit the tablet-laptop sweet spot with the Surface Pro 3.
This is mighty bold of them considering the fact that some users are still reluctant to embrace windows 8.1, and not forgetting the pure tablets that are already established like the iPad.
Well, on a different note the device does have some impressive features, starting out with its bigger, higher-resolution screen. The Surface Pro 3 has a 12-inch display, moving away from the cramped up 10.6 inch found on its predecessor. The other feature worth noting is the improved kickstand, which supports a range of positions making for a more comfortable laptop style use. The Surface Pro also comes with configuration options of up to an Intel i7 processor, greatly improving on speed.
I guess we will just have to wait and see if these new improvements will be enough to push the device into a larger market share.
