Microsoft hoped to knock Apple’s iPad away its perch when it launched the top tablet. Now with the third-generation Area Pro 3, it hopes to topple off Apple’s MacBook Air. The Surface Pro 3 launched in NY overnight is being pitched as the brand new best business with a 12-inch 2160 x 1440 screen that jumps up into 10.6-inch screen of the prior Surface tablet.
That new screen size means the top Pro 3 has a more traditional 3:2 aspect ratio rather compared to distinctive 16:9 ratio of the top tablets. It’s the tablet that may replace your laptop; Microsoft stated launching the tablet hybrid. It may be the most powerful, thinnest, and lightest Area Pro yet. It is a full PC along with a brilliant tablet.

Microsoft has taken a clear change of tack with this version of the Surface after the top Pro 2 struggled to make much of an impact available, with the most recent IDC numbers showing that Surface tablets were simply 1.5 % of global tablet shipments within the first quarter of this year, lower from 1.8 % this past year.

Microsoft highlighted that the Surface Professional 3 was lighter and 30 % thinner than Apple’s MacBook Air along with a new hinge between the screen and also the kickstand means it can now be propped on any angle between zero and a hundred and fifty degrees, which is designed to allow it to be easier to sit on your clapboard.

Microsoft also unveiled new detachable keyboards having a bigger track pad and a stylus, or even pen as Microsoft called it. Something missing from the New York release was a rumored Surface Mini. The top Pro 3 promises 9-hour battery existence. It runs a full version of Windows 8 with an Intel Core i3 chip (with i5 as well as i7 versions available), is 9.1mm thick and it has a micro SD card reader along with a USB 3 port.
