SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— Several companies have pitched their tablets as a laptop replacements. Microsoft’s latest, the Surface Pro 3 tablet, was unveiled this week and they’re saying that they’ve gotten things right this time.
If you’re familiar with the Surface Pro line, you know they have an optional magnetically attached keyboard as well as a kickstand that gives it both a laptop look and feel, if that’s what you want.
The kickstand has been improved from previous versions so you can change the angle and so that it fits better on your lap. They’ve also created a sort of friction hinge on the optional keyboard so that it’s much more like a laptop.
