Microsoft today unveiled the Surface Pro 3 tablet, its newest-generation mobile device that will try to blend tablets and laptops in a more user-friendly interface. The new Surface Pro 3 has a 12-inch screen and kickstand, with stylus support, powered by the Intel Core i3, Core i5, or Core i7 processors.

 

 

Microsoft truly hopes the Surface Pro 3 will help users replace their laptops with a powerful tablet that can hopefully woo users away from notebooks and ultrabooks. The screen supports 2160x1440 resolution with 1080p HD display, and is larger than the Surface Pro 2's 10.6-inch screen. Storage capacities range from 64 up to 512GB, and RAM capacities include 4 or 8GB of RAM.

 

The device goes on sale Wednesday, with a $799 starting MSRP, with prices increasing up to $999, $1,299 and up to $1,949 for the most expensive model with increased RAM and storage capacity.
