Microsoft Surface Pro 3 – Create Campaign

Microsoft are on their 3rd iteration of their Surface Pro range. The hybrid tablet with full fat Windows has always been well reviewed but had received criticism for the weight and battery life in comparison to a traditional tablet. Finally with the Surface Pro 3 Microsoft have resolved most of these problems allowing the device to function just as well in tablet and laptop mode and because of this is has received universal acclaim for review sites and regular users themselves. If you are looking for a hybrid tablet it is generally regarded as the top option out there.

In comparison to a Android or Windows RT based tablet the SP3 has 4th generation Intel Core chips going from an i3-4020Y running at 1.5GHz to an i7-4650U running at 1.7GHz to 3.3GHz with Turbo Boost. This allows users to run fully fledged work applications including Photoshop or Dreamweaver. However the power inside the SP3 doesn't mean you have to sacrifice portability as it weighs just 800g making it considerably lighter than a 11-inch Macbook Air and only 350g heavier than a iPad Air 2 which uses mobile components.

To show off the flexibility of the SP3 Microsoft have recently launched a new campaign showing how the it can adapt for multiple situations. For creative types one of its strongest features is the ability to draw directly onto the SP3 with the included stylus rather than having to scan in drawings or use dedicated drawing devices.

You can buy the Surface Pro 3 today from £639.00
