June 23, 2014 (Newswire) - The took place recently in New York event allowed Microsoft to address the strengths and weaknesses of the strategy of Redmond. Obviously, there was a focal point of the event: Pro 3 Living It was obvious for two reasons. Firstly, despite expectations to the contrary, it was in fact a single device that has been announced. Second, at least in terms of appearance and specifications, it is clearly a superb device. But there were some weaknesses, and apart from the fact that there was no surface Mini, this is clearly the price that was able to cringe.
On the one hand, the range of Microsoft Surface Pro has long been criticized for being relatively expensive but the third generation is clearly in the extreme. Obviously, these side «negative» results in a device with a juicy Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB of internal storage. But to give this little gem will need to save up to 1949 Euros. Fortunately Panes Panay made a lot of noise about how this is the tablet that can replace your laptop. For this price, really hope so. Indeed, at equal price, can buy a high-end laptop and still have enough to buy a decent tablet. might even venture into Apple territory if wanted to be mischievous.
Surface Pro 3
Of course, there are cheaper models available, starting with the «entry level " version with Intel Core i3 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, but even it will cost 799 Euros. This is asking a lot for such a device. Yes, it is both elegant and sexy, but Microsoft is already facing an uphill battle to gain popularity on its own desktop operating system, Windows 8.1. Could it be the reason for the update Windows 8.1 which reduces the requirements for the operating system? And remember, the price pay for the Pro 3 Size is only the beginning. For the price, just have a tablet. But this is supposed to be able to replace your laptop.
What laptops have? Keyboards! While a wireless keyboard and pleasant can be purchased for a few dollars, if really want to show your love for the area, will need a Cover Type. However, it will cost to 129.99 Euros again. Thus, the price of a Pro Surface 3 entry level rises to 930 Euros. At that price start with a decent laptop.
Type of Cover Surface Pro 3
But can appreciate. There is so much to say and love on the Surface Pro 3 it is possible to forgive the folly of price. Although not going to rush to buy one, must admit that try to have good hands... and why not abandon my Mac Book. While Microsoft may not have yet reached the heights ambitious Apple products, but the Surface Pro 3 is clearly closer. It is expensive but it is pretty.
With this iteration of the Surface Pro, Microsoft has introduced a lot of temptations. The new format of the display is very attractive. The widescreen may be very fashionable, but Pro Surface and Surface Pro 2 can hide. The 3:2 aspect ratio offers a more comfortable resolution and 2160 x 1440 pixels is not short of pixels. Nine hours of battery life obviously a theoretical maximum) is perhaps not what one is entitled to expect of a tablet but still...
But as beautiful as it is, with all these decent features, I'm not sure the price suitable for everyone. Fear that only the professional world can get their hands on...
Microsoft is clearly going to have to fight to convince a large number of people that this is a worthwhile investment. In truth, it is a great product, but it is a huge expense for what is, ultimately, just a very nice laptop - and despite protesters, does not involve compromise. Microsoft does happen to compete with the finest devices on the market?
