Well, I finally caved and picked up a Surface Pro 3. I’ve been toying with the idea for some time now, looking to replace my Nvidia Shield Tablet with something a little better for writing. I loved the idea of having something with a large screen and full desktop experience, but my previous use of a tablet running Windows had been less than ideal.
It’s been just less than a week of using the Surface Pro 3 and so far I love it. I’ve even come to the conclusion that it’s time to finally give up my Macbook Pro (maybe). With the Windows 10 update the Surface Pro 3 has gone from being a good device to being an amazing device.
Finally both tablet and laptop mode work well. Unlike my previous experiences with Windows 8.1, everything flows, there’s no horrid interruptions like users had to face before.
The device is fast and powerful, handling pretty much everything I do without batting an eyelid. Throw in good battery life and I’m onto a winner. When it comes to my writing this thing is awesome.
The Surface Pen is a welcome addition to my usage. Note taking feels natural and drawing works well.
Basically, the Surface Pro 3 has combined all of my devices into one. I’ll write as more in depth review after using it for a little longer, but so far, I’m more than glad I decided to give this device a chance!
