Surface Pro 3: the tablet that can replace your laptop

| Craig Hodges


Microsoft yesterday announced the most recent member of the Surface family—the Surface Pro 3—and we couldn’t be more excited to bring this dynamic tool to our partners and customers across New England and the globe.

We’ve had an ambitious vision to build Surface to enable people to do more. Today, 96% of people in the US who have an iPad also have a laptop. They want a lighter device to watch videos and read books, but need a laptop with an Intel core processor to do real work.

Surface Pro 3 is the answer.  It is only 9.1mm thin, weighs only 800 grams, and its 12-inch screen works great in portrait orientation. It is also a powerful laptop available with core i3, i5 or i7 processors, up to 9 hours of battery life (10% more than the Surface Pro 2), and a reinvented Surface Pen that delivers the best writing and drawing experience.

We had the goal of being able to start writing with just the click of a pen, the way it works in real life. The beauty of moving from paper to digital when writing is that all your ink goes with you anywhere you go, and the OneNote integration allows this to include all of your devices.

The kickstand is now a multi-position kickstand so that you can set it to exactly the right angle for desktop, countertop, laptop or any angle you prefer – all the way to 150 degrees, which is perfect for writing and drawing. To complement the kickstand, our engineers invented the next-generation of Type Cover.

The Surface Pro 3 is available today for pre-order and will be available for purchase in stores and through authorized resellers beginning on June 20th in the US and Canada and, by the end of August, in 26 additional markets.  Place your order here or be sure to stop by any of our Microsoft Stores across the region.
