Buying Guide For The Best Monitors For Surface Pro 3

  1. What is the Surface Pro 3.0?

Surface Pro 3.0 is a thin, lightweight, and fanless tablet PC that was released by Microsoft in January 2014. The device has been made available with a variety of configurations that range from a Core i3 processor to a Core i7 processor. The device features a 12-hour battery life and it has been designed to be used at all angles, making it an excellent productivity tool for professionals.

  1. What are the pros?

The Surface Pro 3 comes with an improved kickstand and keyboard which makes it easier to use at different angles than the previous version of the tablet. It also has a better screen resolution and better graphics performance than its predecessor and it weighs less as well at 1.7kgs (3.77 pounds) compared to 2kgs (4 pounds) for the original version of the device.

  1. What are its cons?

The Surface Pro 3 has been made available with different configurations which range from various processors like Core i3, Core i5, etc., and RAM amounts like 4GB, 8GB, or 16GB; however, there is no two-in-one option that would have allowed users to choose between having more storage or more processing power in their devices; thus making them less ideal for professional use such as graphic design or video editing. Also, there are some users who have complained about the battery life is much lower than 12 hours; however, this can be improved with the help of a power adapter.

  1. What is the best configuration to buy?

The best configuration to buy would be the Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256GB storage option which is available in different colors such as black, white, and pink. The device comes with a 12-hour battery life which is not very good for professionals but it is enough for casual use at home or work.

  1. What are its dimensions?

The dimensions of the device are 10.81 x 7.93 x 0.33 inches (27 x 20 x 0.86 cm) and it weighs 1.7kgs (3.77 pounds). The dimensions do not include the kickstand so if you have a smaller tablet you may want to look at other options as they will fit better in your hands while working on them as they are lighter than most tablets that have been released recently; however, this does not mean that they will fit comfortably in your hands when working on them for long periods of time due to their weight and thickness; however, if you intend on using it at home then you will be able to use it comfortably for hours without any problems or pain due to its lightweight nature; however, if you intend on using it while traveling then a tablet case will be necessary so that your hands do not get sore from holding it all day long while working or watching movies or playing games on your device as well as typing out emails and documents, etc. There are also cases available online which will protect your device as well as provide extra protection when traveling.

Conclusion 

Pro 3 is a good device for casual use as it is lightweight and comes with long battery life; however, if you intend on using your tablet for professional purposes then you may want to look at other alternatives such as the iPad Pro or the Surface Pro 4 which has been made available with various configurations that range from different processors and RAM amounts to different colors.
