Here are some ideas for what to do with your new Surface Pro 3 right out of the box

“Halo: Spartan Assault”

You’ve unboxed your new Surface Pro 3, and there’s no shortage of things you can do, for fun or for work, right away: Play “Halo: Spartan Assault,” for example, optimized for a touch-based device; or dig into Adobe Photoshop CC, that’s optimized for both touch and pen.

Over on the Surface Blog, there are some recommendations of awesome apps and games to start with, including Sudoku from Microsoft Studios, pre-installed on every Surface Pro 3, and taking full advantage of the Surface Pro 3 pen.

Pairing the pen with the Surface Pro 3 is “simple and the setup experience will walk you through it,” writes Dan Laycock on the Surface Blog. “The pen draws in apps like Fresh Paint and Sketchbook Express, it takes notes in OneNote, it marks up presentations in PowerPoint or documents in Word, and makes it easy to navigate desktop apps when you’re not using a mouse and keyboard.”
