Surface Pro 3 is out : My Opinions and more!

The all new Surface Pro 3 has full version of Windows 8.1 pro ! 
It's real quick time ! Microsoft has managed to crack another beauty in the form of Surface Pro 3. We saw the launch of Surface 2 and Surface 2 Pro in October 2013 with Windows 8.1, now it's the time for a ultra-portable and high performance Surface devices from the tech giant. Straight off, these devices are made to compete with the rivals such MacBook Pro .Well it does make feel other tablets/laptops old. With an unmatched performance delivered with 4th generation Intel processors (i3/i5/i7) and gorgeous 12 inch screen with an immersive display resolution of 2160 x 1440. It's even lighter than it's older generation devices, weighing around 800 grams. Add some more sweetness to this, it runs Windows 8.1 pro which means you can run all your traditional desktop apps with ease. The kickstand now offers more multiple positions which lets you enjoy a complete tablet/laptop experience, be it on your lap or table. It does have detachable keyboard which is attached to the device by a magnet !. The Windows button has been moved to the left of the device which makes accessing Start screen more faster in tablet mode.

Add the new positions of the kickstand to make it work your way.
There are five models for the different kinds of people to meet their needs, first up is the 64 GB/ i3 model which is the cheapest of the lot, it costs $799 in the Microsoft store. The second model has a i5 with 128 GB storage and it costs $999. Next comes the model which offers a i5 and 256 Gigs for storage for $1299. If you are in for some serious work with Photoshop and other powerful software which demand more then the next two models are just designed for you, both of them run over i7 processor with two storage options,256 GB and 512 GB priced at $1549 and $1949 respectively. 64GB or 128GB storage with 4GB RAM and 256GB or 512GB storage with 8GB RAM.You can pre-order any of the models in the Microsoft Store now. Talking about accessories, you get a Surface pen for free inside the box and the type cover for Surface Pro 3 is also available for pre-order and the Surface Ethernet adapter is marked as coming soon. I also look forward for a dock for the new devices soon. 

Since the launch of Surface devices back in 2012, I have been expecting such a power horse from Microsoft and they have delivered it in the right time if not late. You know this puts Microsoft in a more commanding position in tablets, it beats out whatever device you compare with it. Also Microsoft has understood the needs of people within a short time and the result is what you are seeing, not only in the hardware side but also in software side. The potential of this tablet is very high and it remains on how people see and use these devices .2014 is turning out to be important year for Microsoft as it has more products in the horizon such as Office for touch (codenamed "Gemini"), Windows 8.1 update 2, Windows Phone 8.1 and may be a Surface 3 too ! I'm really excited about how Microsoft is heading, they are in the right path.
