Surface Pro 3 Announced

The new Surface Pro 3 was introduced to the World today in New York during the Teched Conference, claiming as the tablet that can replace your laptop. It’s a new beast from the software giant with a 12-inch ClearType Full HD display, 4th-generation Intel® Core™ processor and up to 8 GB of RAM, along with up to 9 hours of web-browsing battery life.

What’s new?

Besides the powerful performance upgrade from its previous version, the new Surface Pro 3’s continuous kickstand stands out as an old but also new feature. Surface Pro 3 couples all that power with a new multi-position kickstand that features a friction-hinge that lets you pick whatever angle you want from zero to 150 degrees.

The Type Cover has also got an upgrade too. The new click-in keyboards that come in five colors with 63% bigger track-pads and even more stability. From my personal experience, if you are going to have a keyboard for your Surface, don’t go with the Touch Cover, Type Cover works much better and more efficient. According to the news, a new Surface Docking Station is also in the work and will be available in the next few months.

It also comes with a new Surface Pen that would turn the Surface into a notepad that you can write on. What’s more intuitive, you can  also open a blank OneNote document with a click of the Surface Pen to instantly capture your next idea – even if your device is in sleep mode. A beautiful combination of how Pen and OneNote can work together.
