Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 is designed to be a tablet that can replace your laptop. It was built to be faster, lighter, thinner, have better sound and overall perform better than its predecessor, the Surface Pro 2, giving it the power and performance of a laptop with the convenience of a tablet. Weighing in at just 1.76 pounds and 0.36 inches thin, the Surface Pro 3 is the thinnest Intel Core product made to date.
Its 12 inch screen with 3:2 aspect ratio makes it feel like you’re holding a piece of paper, giving it a comfortable feel for note- taking using Microsoft’s OneNote software. Even the pen is improved to make it feel more like a fountain pen in your hand instead of a stylus for an improved and more realistic writing experience. You can open OneNote with just a click of the Surface Pen, allowing you to document your thoughts and ideas in-the-moment. Worried about the rest of your hand getting in the way when you rest it on the screen to write? Not a problem with Microsoft’s Palm Block Technology.
With models available that have 4th generation Intel® Core™ i3, i5 or i7 processors and storage capacity ranging from 64GB to 512GB, there is a Surface Pro 3 for everyone.
Larger screen, lighter form. The thinnest and lightest in the Pro family, Surface Pro 3 has a larger screen that helps you be productive. Refined to its essential elements, Surface Pro 3 is as beautiful as it is functional. Slip it into your bag or backpack and go.
