Microsoft announced Surface Pro 3 device at a press event two weeks back. This 12-inch device scales at 1.76 pounds, but packs all the power and performance of a premium laptop in a thin and lightweight design. It also comes with the all-new Surface Pen which delivers a natural writing and drawing experience.
If you want to experience this device in person, Surface Pro 3 Demo devices along with new Type Covers are now available in Microsoft Stores from June 6th, you can find the nearest Microsoft Store here. If you already had a hands-on experience, you can pre-order it from Microsoft Store website before it goes out-of-stock.
If you don’t have Microsoft Stores nearby your home, it is also now available at the Windows stores at Best Buy.
To get the most out of your hands-on time with Surface Pro 3, Microsoft suggests 5 things you should do to get a feel for the new device.
Hold it. It’s thin. It’s light. It feels incredibly well built. It’s a big, beautiful and well balanced tablet. It’s an incredibly powerful PC.
Try the new Pen. You’ll notice that it feels like a very good pen – not a stylus. Click the purple button on the end of the pen and you’ll immediately launch a new note in OneNote where you can write, scribble, and sketch to your heart’s content. These notes are automatically saved to OneDrive and accessible across all of your devices.
Try out the new kickstand – it works just as well upright at 22 degrees – the angle of the first kickstand, as it does in ‘canvas mode’ at 150 degrees and everywhere in between. Close the kickstand completely to see how it disappears when you’re not using it. The new kickstand makes Surface Pro 3 incredibly versatile.
Click into the new Type Cover for Surface Pro – check out the new trackpad, which is bigger and smoother for more accurate tracking and better gestures. Magnetically lock the keyboard against the bezel of the screen and see just how stable it is. The combination of the new kickstand and Type Cover make Surface Pro 3 a great device for the desk, the table, the lap, the coffee shop, or the train.
Lock two apps side-by-side on the gorgeous 12” ClearType Full HD screen. Apps and games look great, and the increased real estate makes it easier to get to work or to multi-task. Grab the pen again and try your skills at Sudoku. There’s a brilliant Sudoku app pre-installed, you’ll play with the pen just as you would on paper.
