While the new Surface Pro 3 is Microsoft's best PC to date, it's more successful as a tablet than a laptop replacement.
Microsoft trims between $100 and $200 off its second-gen Surface Pro 2 tablets ahead of availability of its Surface Pro 3.
Now that Microsoft has announced a successor to the Surface Pro 2, it's time to see how the new tablet stacks up against its older sibling.
Microsoft's subtly updated Windows 8.1 tablet feels more like Surface Pro 1.5 -- improved battery life and better accessories make it a worthwhile (albeit pricey) laptop replacement, but it's still not an iPad-level category killer.
The Surface Mini was supposed to be announced months ago, but its existence is now shrouded in mystery.
The Surface Pro's gutsy design successfully reinvents the Windows 8 laptop by cramming an ultrabook experience into the body of a 10-inch tablet. Those wanting to go all-in on the tablet experience won't regret buying the Surface Pro, but we're holding out for a future, more polished generation of the device.
Sony's thin, powerful Tap 11 tablet shows up the competition in terms of design. It's not ideal for everyone, but only a few tweaks away from being the runaway leader in this smallish category.
Tech giant also confirms decision not to ship a smaller version of the device during its fourth-quarter earnings conference call.
Microsoft made a direct comparison between the Surface Pro 3 and the MacBook Air 13", so we're throwing them into the Prizefight Ring to settle the score once and for all. Let's get it on!
At least three of the software giant's updates address power consumption issues, but another Wi-Fi update is planned next week.
