I have big news to share with you tech-obsessed readers! The brand new Microsoft Surface 3 is now available to pre-order from the Microsoft Store!
As you might recall from this post, I currently have a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 that I received complimentary as a Microsoft Ambassador, and I absolutely love it! It's a hefty little laptop cleverly disguised as a tablet, and with the keypad attached, it allows me to do absolutely everything I need to do for work while traveling. It's awesome! So awesome that I am even more excited about the Microsoft Surface 3 - I mean, if the old model is that cool, what can I expect from the new and improved model?
The Microsoft Surface 3 is stylish, of course, it's portable too, and it has all of the power of Windows and Office into the thinnest, lightest Surface yet, weighing in at just 622g.
Did you hear that? THINNEST. LIGHTEST. Those are magical words to frequent travelers who have to take their work along with them on trips! The battery can last up to ten hours - that's right, TEN HOURS! The Surface 3 is a total powerhouse packed in a tight little package!
With Mother's Day, Father's Day and Graduation Day quickly approaching, the Microsoft Surface 3 couldn't have been released at a better time. Can you imagine the look on mom's face when she unwraps his awesome piece of technology on Mother's Day? Or how about your high school student, as they sit around their graduation day dinner and realize that they'll be heading off to college in the fall with a brand new gadget that will help them with all of their college technology needs?
The Microsoft Surface 3 hits Microsoft Stores on May 5th with a starting price of $499, but you can pre-order it now here.
Do you remember that scene in Legally Blonde where Reese Witherspoon shows up to her first class with a note pad, and the other classmates whip out laptops? Don't let your kid be that kid.
The Microsoft Surface 3 is a great device for everyone, whether you're a traveler like me, a work-from-home parent, a student who needs a powerful device to keep up with school work, or simply someone who loves new technology and is always looking for the next best thing.
