Current market trends show that laptops are slowly but surely going out of fashion. Users are switching more and more towards the mobility and easy functionality offered by tablets. There are numerous offerings of tablets available in today’s market. We’ve taken two of these – Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 and Surface Pro 3 and compared their features for you to be able to make a better choice. Microsoft launched these devices originally as the Surface RT and the Surface Pro and as time has passed, we’ve seen a significant improvement in their functionality offered as well as their performance.
Starting with the basics, the Surface Pro 3 has several display gains over it’s predecessor. Microsoft has increased the screen size on it’s latest offering, with the Surface Pro 3 having a display of 2160×1440 pixels coupled with a pixel density of 208 ppi. Compared to this, the Surface Pro 2 has a display of 1920 x 1080 pixels with a ppi value of 214. This is because in the Surface Pro 3, Microsoft has increased the screen size. The screen dimensions on the Surface Pro 3 are 12 inches wide and 8 inches high with a thickness of 9.1mm. The Surface Pro 2 has screen dimensions of 10.8 inches by 6,8 inches with a thickness of 13.5mm. This ends up giving the Surface Pro 3 a much sharper resolution and will allow you to view pictures and videos in a much higher detail and quality. Despite the larger size, the screen on the Surface Pro 3 weighs a full 100 grams less than the Surface PRo 2. All of these also make the Surface Pro 3 a more likely laptop replacement, a quality Microsoft was aiming at with the launch of the Surface series.
