As the world gets more and more hooked on mobile computing, even a laptop can be too much to lug around from place to place. But when it comes to tackling a serious workload, there’s no substitute for a proper keyboard. Microsoft’s new toy, the Surface Pro 3, claims to have all the processing power of a laptop, with a fourth generation Intel Core processor, up to 512 GB hard drive and up to 8 GB of RAM, all encased in a light tablet frame with a 12″ HD screen. It can handle popular software like the full MS Office and Adobe CC Suites. But, most importantly, it features an optional super slimline keyboard along with a friction-hinged kickstand for a viewing angle up to 150º, and responds to a stylus with personal handwriting recognition. All of which makes it sound like a strong contender for most versatile tab on the market.
