What can be said about Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 that hasn’t already been said numerous times already. It is Microsoft’s newest 12-inch tablet/laptop hybrid and the Redmond giant wants you to replace your laptop with it.
Sean Ong has uploaded a few videos to his YouTube channel, offering the world an unboxing of the new device, along with three videos that go hands-on with the device. Ong even shows off the Surface Pen and takes it for a spin! In my opinion, this is likely one of the best hands-on videos of the device we’ve seen. Ong offers tidbits on the new device, and even shows off a few tricks that the Surface Pro 3 can do.
