Microsoft Surface Pro 3


Third time’s the charm is probably what Microsoft is thinking. The new Surface Pro 3 is all about killing the laptop (specifically, the near-perfect MacBook Air). It has a larger 12-inch 3:2 aspect ratio display with whopping 2160 x 1440 resolution. The better to multitask with, of course. The Surface Pro 3 is also thinner (9.1mm), lighter (1.7 pounds), faster and lasts 10 percent longer (9 hours) than the previous Surface Pro 2.

The built-in kickstand now goes from 22-degrees all the way down to 150-degrees (for better “lapability”). The speakers are 40 percent more powerful. And the Touch Cover Keyboard ($130, sold separately) also boasts a better trackpad with 68 percent more touchable area.

This being a full Windows 8.1 experience, the Surface Pro 3 comes in a number of roaring configs:

$799: Intel Core i3 processor, 64GB SSD, 4GB of RAM

$999: Intel Core i5, 128GB SSD, 4GB of RAM

$1,299: Intel Core i5, 256GB SSD, 8GB of RAM

$1,549: Intel Core i7, 256GB SSD, 8GB of RAM

$1,949: Intel Core i7, 512GB SSD, 8GB of RAM

Microsoft’s new laptop slayer will be available on June 20. You can preorder one now from Microsoft.

Price: Starting at $799 (for Intel Core i3 model)
