Microsoft Surface Pro 3From S$997.20
Tablets are great for consuming entertainment, while laptops and other full PCs are required to actually create those works, or so the conventional wisdom goes. Some substitute the charged word “productivity” for creation, but the pitch is the same. You need one device for A, B, and C, and another for X, Y, and Z.
That means there’s a sizable group of people out there spending at least part of the time lugging around a laptop and a tablet simultaneously. I’ve been guilty of that, usually packing a 13-inch ultrabook or MacBook Air and an iPad into my carry-on bag for airline flights.
With the new Surface Pro 3 from Microsoft, the software powerhouse (and occasional hardware maker) says it finally has the single grand unified device that will satisfy both the creation and consumption instincts equally. You’ll feel just as at home watching a movie or reading a book as you will editing video footage or writing your novel.
