4Keyboard Cover Finally Lives Up to Its Promise
The fourth-generation (Haswell) Intel Core i5 processor in the Surface Pro 3 evaluation unit made app loading and switching a snap. Undoubtedly aided by the internal solid-state drive (SSD), the chips provide a fast and fluid computing experience. Plus, it assures that the Surface Pro can run x86 Windows software. A win-win.
6Grab a Pen
One of the most dramatic portions of the Surface Pro launch event was watching Microsoft’s Panos Panay click the top of the included stylus and seeing the tablet spring to life with OneNote ready for action. The Bluetooth-enabled, aluminum-encased stylus is comfortable to hold and has a premium feel, perfect for digital note-taking.

Surface Pro 2 ships with Windows 8.1, not Windows RT. Apps are great, but often, nothing gets the job done like a full video editing suite, desktop business application or developer toolset. Surface Pro 3 delivers that freedom on the go.
