MICROSOFT SURFACE PRO 3,MORE THAN A LAPTOP REPLACEMENT – LIFE MADE EASY WITH A VERSATILE LAPTOP REPLACEMENT

Gone are the days, mothers like us struggle with a bad back carrying our ‘work’ everywhere we go.  The new Surface Pro 3 is tablet that can replace our laptops and is only 800g and is just 9.1mm thin (almost similar to an iPad!). The tablet surpasses our expectations and outperforms other tablets with the following qualities:

  • Power- 4th-generation Intel Core Processor, up to 8 GB of RAM, 9 hours of web-browsing battery life.  Good for using as inflight entertainment when we travel with our bubbas or for ourselves;
  • Vivd Color- bigger beautiful 12″ full HD screen, great for us to watch Korean drama and or youtube videos for cooking, beauty etc;
  • Great speakers with Dolby enhanced sound so we don’t need to use headphones unless we need it;
  • MicroSD card , Mini DisplayPort and full-size USB 3.0 port- this allows us to expand music and movie library and share between devices;
  • Full PC thinnest keyboard with magnetic lock and has back lighting enabled (now we can still use the tablet in the dark). Available in 5 colors- red, purple, blue, black and cyan;
  • Switches off when we stop typing to save battery life and switches off when cover is closed;
  • Kickstand and cover- more improved and intuitive, it is more adjustable and is able to accomodate a smooth transition from a laptop to a tablet in a snap.  The double-fold hinge enable us to magnetically lock it to the display’s lower bezel, keeping everything in place as we work comfortably on our lap or the desk.  How convenient is that? Working from the desk to the sofa comfortably without having to adjust much.
  • Color-calibrated screen- multitouch input, so we can swipe and pink and drag whenever we need, we can even write an email while bubba is playing a game on the other half of the screen.

    Because it has Microsoft Office you can write novels on it, right? I have the Chromebook. It's very light and portable BUT Google docs is horrible for writers. It has a word limit of 50K words. One Drive I can and do use for novel writing, BUT with the auto-save feature it constantly interrupts my flow. And, I live on a mountain so internet tends to be spotty. With the auto-save whenever there's a hiccup in the internet I lose all my changes! It's great for a second, not a first computer. Surface sounds great IF it has the capabilities of novel writing.
