Microsoft is still tackling the tablet market and has released the all new Surface Pro 3 at a small press event in New York today.
This is the company’s attempt at making a huge tablet that can also work as a machine for professionals, replacing the laptop.
The screen is a huge 12-inches with a 3:2 aspect ratio and a resolution of 2160×1440 – a very high pixel density. It comes in at a very thin 9.1mm and weighs 800 grams. Even with it being so thin, it still packs 9 hours of web browsing. Buyers can choose from 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB SSD with either 4GB or 8GB RAM. The 4th generation of Intel Core processors are also available in i3, i5 or i7. Microsoft has definitely made the tablet to suit the buyers needs with so many spec options.
Unlike other tablets the Surface Pro offers a full size USB 3.0 port and a MicroSD card slot, making it much more useful. Also included is the ‘Premium Pen’ – in the box buyers will find a stylus that’s been designed to enhance their Surface Pro experience, giving them more accurate touch capability.
Prices will start from $799 for the base model but quickly rises as more storage, RAM and the more powerful processors are added.
