Review: Snugg Surface Pro 3 Case

I picked this up after getting my Surface Pro 3 and I’m glad that I did. The case looks and feels great and offers enough room to fit the Surface with all of its accessories attached (keyboard and Surface Pen)

At first I was concerned that the case wouldn’t fit right considering it was advertised as having room for the Surface and its keyboard. However its a great fit, not overly large like some other cases I tired. This was made for the Surface, not just a generic case that fits everything ‘around’ that size.

There’s a second pouch on the back of the case for slotting papers or other slim devices in and on the front there’s a business/credit card sized slot.

The case is basic, but looks great and feels fantastic.

Offer: Surface Pro 3 Discounted and Free Keyboard

Well this is tempting! If you’re in the market for a tablet/laptop hybrid device then now might be the time to pick one up. The device is currently on offer with a nice bit of discount, but it also comes with the Type Cover free of charge.

All in all, that’s not a bad package and price for such a good bit of kit. The Surface Pro 3 supports the best of both worlds, offering a full desktop experience in a gorgeous package. The device is capable of running as a tablet or laptop, the 12 inch touch screen giving enough space to work comfortably, which when combined with the Type Cover offers a desktop experience.

So as I mentioned above, if you’re in the market for a device like this, or like me you’ve been tempted by the Surface, then now is the time to buy!

If you’re after something smaller then Microsoft did recently launch the Surface 3, a smaller version of the Surface Pro. It’s not quite as powerful as its bigger brother, but still it offers a full desktop/tablet experience to the user and can be paired up with a Type Cover.

Chromebooks

Up until a month ago I had never played with a Chromebook. I saw them as watered down laptop, capable of barely anything, but now I’ve had a tinker with a few, changing my perception.

What got me think was, what do I actually use my laptop for? Writing, browsing and the occasional spreadsheet, all of which a Chromebook can handle. They are nice and lightweight, and the best bit, they are very reasonably priced.

I almost want to get, my carry everywhere device, but that seems a little wasteful considering I have my macbook pro. However it’s something I’m considering for the future. It offers everything that I need and at a pretty good price.

What really struck me was how likely it is that these devices could really start to eat into Microsofts territory. For students a Chromebook is pretty perfect and for a lot of other people these Chromebooks will really fulfil most needs.

What I’d like to see from the Chromebooks is either a 15 inch model, or a hybrid, a great tablet and keyboard combination, like a Surface running Chrome. Fingers crossed either of these things come along, and then maybe I’ll say farewell to my Macbook.

I think it should be an interesting year seeing how Chromebooks evolve and push their way into the market. They’ve become serious competitors now, offering more than enough to steal users away from Windows. Who knows what the future hold, but with Microsoft offering a hugely pricey Surface 3 in response, the future isn’t look bright for them.

Ordered My Samsung Ativ Pc Pro

Just got around to ordering my Samsung Ativ Pc Pro so I can see how well it performs in replacing my MacBook Air for productivity and writing! I was holding out for the Microsoft Surface Pro but it seems like they have no interest in letting us in the UK know pricing or availability so I gave up.
