Microsoft unveils the surface Pro 3. Microsoft unveiled its third-generation Surface device on May 20 in New York City.
The device, dubbed the Surface Pro 3, is a 12-inch Intel Core i7-based device with a 2160 X 1440 resolution. It has a 3X2 aspect ratio, is .36 inches thick and weighs 800 grams without the keyboard.
“This is the tablet than can replace your laptop,” claims Panay. According to The Verge’s report “Along with the Surface Pro 3 being a lot thinner, it’s also a lot lighter than the previous models as it’s 800 grams in weight.
The weight of the original Surface Pro tablets was a big drawback, and it appears Microsoft has really focused on removing the bulk this time around.”
Panay used Apple’s MacBook Air to compare with the new Surface Pro 3 on stage at the event. The Surface Pro 3 will come in three versions they are Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7. Microsoft plans to release Surface Pro 3 from tomorrow for $799.
