Microsoft has launched the new Surface Pro 3, sporting the power of a laptop in the form of a tablet.
I am very curious.
When you compare a Surface Pro 3 versus a comparable MacBook Air, it’s about the same price—around a $100 difference. The Surface Pro 3 has a 12-inch touch display, whereas the MacBook Air can be purchased in an 11-inch and 13-inch size. And when you consider the difference in the operating system, we might very well be comparing apples and oranges.
None the less, it’s a curious question that Microsoft raises in my mind with these three ads for the Surface Pro 3.
Could the new Surface Pro 3 replace your laptop?
What do you think?
The idea of having a full-fledged OS on a tablet is appealing, but it clearly comes at a laptop price tag. Microsoft’s move towards a unified operating system for tablets and computers could be a game changer. However, I can’t help but wonder if the appeal with tablets is the oversimplification of the interface and that is isn’t an actual full fledged operation system.
Even as someone who loves the Apple ecosphere, I believe there are many pastors and ministers who would love using the Surface Pro 3.
