The Surface Pro 3 is the latest flagship tablet from Microsoft, despite packing a larger 12-inch with a 2160 x 1440 resolution display, it's lighter than the Pro 2 at 800 grams. The new Surface includes a Core i7 that’s 10% faster than the one on its predecessor. Another big area of focus was the redesigned kickstand, the new kickstand just smoothly slides into any position you like within a 150-degree angle.

The new Surface is great in a lot of ways-from its relatively thin build and quality construction to its speedy performance and OS that's perfectly designed for the form factor-but whether or not it can actually replace your laptop depends on how much you want a solid keyboard and track pad, and if you plan to use it on your lap.

It seems a bit early to crown the Surface Pro 3, but even playing solely by tablets' rules, it's a remarkably better device than most other tablets. Ignore the kickstand. Ignore the Intel-powered processor. Ignore the fact that this will run just about...

The costs of choosing a Surface Pro over a traditional laptop are fewer than ever but they're still present, while the benefits are still fairly niche. So if they appeal to you, by all means buy a Surface Pro 3; it's fantastic for what it is. That doesn't mean, though, that it's necessarily what you want.
