Last Tuesday, Microsoft had a press event in New York for their newest iteration of the Surface tablet/laptop hybrid series. ?The rumors that surrounded the next release of the tablet was actually a smaller ?mini? counterpart of the previous model, with a much more powerful processing power. This didn?t happen. Well, not all.

The Surface Pro 3 is ?great news for people looking to fill in the gap between tablets and laptops, and it is more than the average of either of the two sides of what it is. It is probably the perfect solution for consumers, whether they be students or workers on the go. The Surface 3 Pro also claims that it can actually replace a real laptop with its sheer portability, convenience and power.

The Surface Pro 3 has a larger 12-inch ClearType Full HD screen. It is way thinner than MacBook Air. It will run on a 4th generation Intel Core processor, and with RAM that can amount up to 8GB. (This varies per model or ?bundle?) With regards to battery life, Microsoft claims that it can run non-stop, for 9 hours with pure internet browsing.

All models in the Surface 3 Pro line run on Windows 8.1, has a USB 3.0 port, a microSD slot and a mini display port.
