Product of the week

Microsoft Surface Pro 3

Surface Pro 3 is the latest notebook and tablet hybrid made by Microsoft. It runs Windows 8.1, has a 12" screen with a resolution of 2160 by 1440, and runs a 4th generation Intel processor. It has 5MP and 1080p front and rear facing cameras. Microsoft claims it has 9 hours of battery life when browsing the web. Unlike previous "RT" versions of the Surface, this will run both "Modern UI" (Windows 8 style) apps along with traditional Windows programs.

Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 still has a multi-position kickstand and optional click-in keyboard to make it more of a traditional notebook. It has ports for USB 3.0, Mini DisplayPort, and a microSD card reader. It also comes with the Surface Pen, which makes it easy to sketch and take handwritten notes when using it as a tablet.

Surface Pro 3 comes in a few different configurations. Internal storage ranges from 64GB to 512GB, and you can choose either an Intel i3, i5, or i7 processor. The 64GB and 128GB Surfaces come with 4GB of RAM, while the other models have 8GB. The Surface Pro Type Cover doesn't come with the Microsoft Surface Pro 3, but it is highly recommended. The keyboard comes in a variety of colors.
