Microsoft today revealed that big businesses are already choosing Surface Pro 3 even before its release. During the launch event, Microsoft announced that companies such as BMW Group, The Coca-Cola Company and Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy have already committed to purchasing and deploying Surface Pro 3 as one of the choices inside their organizations. Today, they revealed that Avanade and Seattle Children’s Hospital have also committed to purchasing and deploying Surface Pro 3 inside their organizations. It is no big surprise on why Surface Pro 3 appeals to businesses, because Surface Pro 3 can effectively replace a laptop and tablet for their employees as a one device. Since it runs on Windows 8.1, they can effectively manage them with ease.
When we unveiled Surface Pro 3, we talked about how lots of pro-sumers want a tablet, but need a laptop. We’ve found that businesses are no different. Surface Pro 3 appeals to businesses that are interested in the opportunities that come along with increased mobility, but are challenged by the complexity and cost that can be associated with purchasing, managing and securing a laptop and an iPad for a single user. Simply said, Surface Pro 3 can replace a laptop and an iPad. Why should businesses buy both?
