Tablets are supposed to be weaklings compared to desktops and laptops, right? Microsoft begs to differ with its new tablet that packs awesome hardware.
Satisfied with the tablet you have right now? Good for you bro! But we won’t blame you if you’ll look at it like it’s an obsolete piece of junk after seeing the gorgeous hardware beast below. Behold, the all-new Microsoft Surface Pro 3!
While most tablets are aimed at being multimedia devices that offer larger eye-candy than smartphones, there are those that have the loftier goal of being a laptop or desktop replacement. The Surface Pro 3, the fourth and latest in Microsoft’s Surface tablet series, belongs to the latter, serving up a truly drool-worthy specs-line that will make geeks proud.
And when we say impressive, we mean the type hardware salesmen in gadget stores will be excitedly blabbing about to no end. We’re talking about a tablet that has PC-class innards headlined by a fourth-generation Intel Core processor, up to a whopping 8GB of RAM, up to 512GB of internal storage, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, two 5-megapixel cameras, and a full working version of Windows 8.1 Pro. Hebigat, pre!
You’ll also get a 12-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 2160x1440. That’s even higher than Full-HD! Sweet!
“Eh baka mabigat at makapal naman ‘yan?” you might ask. Hindi po, sir! Despite having hardware you’d normally find in a bulkier notebook or PC, the Surface Pro 3 managed to keep things slim. The darn thing just measures 9.1mm thick and weighs less than a kilo (800 grams to be exact)! It also comes with a kickstand for two-handed operation.
So it looks like the Big M has a winner here. We have to warn you though: It’s really pricey! The base version (Core i3, 64GB capacity, 4GB RAM) goes for $799 (around P34,900) while the top-of-the-line model (Core i7, 512GB capacity, 8GB RAM) will set you back for almost $2,000 (around P87,200). Yes, even its SRPs are laptop-like.
It’s now available in the US of A although there’s still no word if and when it will be available here. We bet it will though, seeing that its predecessor, the Surface Pro 2, landed locally late last year. In the meantime, we leave this timeless piece of advice to those who want one: save up or keep your hopes down!
Note: A tablet cover that also doubles as a physical keyboard is also available for an additional $100 (around P4,500)
