standard Surface Pro 3 Announced; With 3×2 Aspect Ratio 12″ Screen; $799

DSC_1240Microsoft have just now pulled the covers off their latest addition to the Surface family, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3. The Surface Pro takes a completely different direction than previous Surfaces in terms of the aspect ratio; which comes at an interesting 3X2 12″ screen with a resolution of 2160 x 1440  (which is pretty awesome). 

The Surface Pro 3 is also Uber light at only 800 Grams!!! It also has a Intel Core i7 processor on the inside, which means that it runs the full version of Windows and not RT.

The Surface Pro 3’s kickstand is even more versatile than before! With the standard 22 degree kickstand, as well as a new “canvas” 150 degree mode.

DSC_1360Microsoft have also announced a slew of new type covers with a much larger and enhanced trackpad (68% larger)

BoFxGNUIQAE1Ac1DSC_1412The Surface Pro 3 also has front facing speakers, a rarity for tablets (and even smart phones); as only the HTC One has really gotten behind the front facing speakers movement.

The Surface Pro 3 will go up on sale starting tomorrow; for $799 for the i3 version (meaning that the i7 might be near the $1000 mark :/ ) Seems I was overly optimistic, the full specced i7 version will run you close to the $2000 mark :O
