Microsoft has unveiled its third- generation Surface Pro 3 in New York city, USA on Tuesday.
It is powered by a 4th generation Intel Core processor (there will be Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 options), and storage capacity ranging from 64 to 512 GB with 4 or 8 GB of RAM. It still features a full-size USB 3.0 port for peripherals, a Mini DisplayPort for projecting to an external display, and a microSD card reader for expandable storage, according to Microsoft.
The company have increased the size of the screen – Surface Pro 3 has a 12” ClearType Full HD screen with 2160 x 1440 resolution.
The new screen is 38% bigger than Surface Pro 2, with 50% more pixels. In addition, every screen is color calibrated at the factory, so you’ll see accurate, brilliant colors, great white points, and great contrast on every device. The combo of the big, beautiful screen and SD card means Surface Pro 3 gives big-screen entertainment anywhere.
It comes with an aluminum pen that feels just like an actual pen, with its Palm Block technology user can rest while writing without leaving a trace.
All of this comes in a package that is very thin and light. It weighs just 1.76 pounds and is 0.36 inches thin. In fact, it is just half the thickness of a MacBook Pro, and 30% thinner than an 11-inch MacBook Air. Oh, and the battery life is up to 9 hours – 10% better than Surface Pro 2.
