About Microsoft Surface Pro 3
Surface Pro 3 is Microsoft’s latest hybrid tablet (laplet) computer running Windows 8.1 Pro.
It has a 12-inch touch display with 2160×1440 pixels (216 ppi) and powered by 4th generation Intel Core processor family (i3, i5, i7). Available storage option available from 64GB to 512GB, with microSD slot supporting up to 128GB. The build-in kickstand has multiple positions capable of opening up to 150 degrees.
The laplet has dual 5.0 megapixel cameras on rear and front, as well as, a full size USB 3.0 port, a Mini DisplayPort, and a headset jack. It has front-facing stereo speakers and dual microphones. A Surface Pen with pressure sensitivity included.
The battery life last up to 9 hours of web browsing on single charge. It is only 800g weight.
I wonder why don’t Microsoft just include the Surface Pro Type Cover with Surface Pro 3 as a bundle? So far I don’t see other third-party keyboard cover for Surface Pro 3 yet. Yes, you can use any bluetooth keyboard with Surface Pro 3.
The included Surface Pen is a gift if you want to take hand-written notes or drawing with pen on tablet. I have a Windows 8 tablet computer with pen, too. How often do I use the pen? None. Yet, my wife, who is a lecturer, would love to have a digital pen to make remarks on notes.
Surface Pro 3 processor, RAM, and storage are not user upgradable. I will avoid Intel i3 64GB version because Windows 8.1 Pro and Microsoft Office would taken up most of the space already.
Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is not your budget computer. It is for those who wants a lightweight Windows tablet computer with digital pen and don’t mind to pay more.
