Microsoft might have hit the perfect combination of portability and powerful computing with the Surface Pro 3 Windows tablet.
The new tablet can run resource demanding PC softwares like Adobe Photoshop and a full version of Microsoft Office using a combination of up to an Intel Core i7 chip and 8GB of RAM.
Microsoft even hit on Apple during the Surface Pro 3 presentation by comparing it with a MacBook Air on a weighing scale. Needless to say, the Surface Pro 3 proved to be lighter and thinner.
Microsoft Surface Pro 3 also has a larger screen size than its predecessor. Its 12-inch Full HD Plus ClearType screen makes more room for productivity and multimedia consumption. You can even use a Surface Pen to doodle or markup Powerpoint presentations.
The integrated Kickstand and Type Cover turns the Surface Pro 3 tablet into a full fledge laptop. Power it up and you’ll be greeted by Windows 8.1 Pro.

The higher the specs, the more expensive the Surface Pro 3 can be. The price starts at $799.00 or around ₱36,000.00. Is that price worth it? If you need a tablet with the best computing power – yes, it is!
The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 also has Wi-Fi, USB 3.0 ports, microSD card reader and a battery that can make it last up to 9 hours of moderate use.
