Surface Pro 3 Review!!!
Out of know where Microsoft decided to give us a refresh to the Surface Pro line of tablet. Now the Surface Pro 3 has been my go to travel companion for the last 4 months and I have to say its worked out great, until I got my hands on the Surface Pro 3. Granted the unit I used for the review comes with a Core-i5 processor (Intel HD4400), 256GB storage, & 8GB of Ram. The devices is lighter and better in every way that its predecessor. Surface Pro 3 features a large and beautiful 2160×1440 2K color-calibrated screen and 3:2 aspect ratio with multitouch input, so you can swipe, pinch and drag whenever you need. The improved optional Surface Pro Type Cover and more adjustable, continuous kickstand will transform your device experience from tablet to laptop in a snap. The New Keyboard is also stellar, with an extra magnetic hinge, it provides for a sturdy typing experience that works in hand with the new hinge levels. The surface Pro 3 though bigger in screen size, is a much lighter device than the pro 2.Its only 9.1mm thick and weighs in at about 1.7lbs makes all the difference in the world and makes the surface pro 3 a much easier device to handle. The new custom Surface Pen, which uses Ntriggers and not Wacom tech; is crafted with a solid, polished aluminum finish, was designed to look and feel like an actual fountain pen to give you a natural writing experience- truly it feels like writing with a pen on paper using OneNote. With all that processing power and a new display that pushes out 1440p resolution, you would think the Surfce Pro 3 battery life were abysmal, But that isn’t the case, Microsoft promises 9hrs of web browsing. In our own conditioned test, after rendering 4 videos we still got about 4-5hrs of battery life left. For me the Surface Pro 3 is not just an improvement on what Microsoft created with the Pro line of Surfaces, rather the Surface PRo 3 helps express the true meaning of the post PC era. Its not a Tablet or a Laptop, its just the Surface Pro 3- and I like it that way.
