Australian Review: Surface Pro 3 – Is it really the tablet that can replace your laptop?

The Surface Pro 3 has been one of my most anticipated devices of the year. While the Surface Pro and Surface Pro 2 had a lot of potential, there were a few issues that couldn’t be overlooked. The kickstand had positions, the trackpad was too small, and the devices were almost impossible to use on your lap.

The Surface Pro 3 amends for sins of the father, and addresses the majority of the complaints made about its predecessors. I’ll be upfront: the Surface Pro 3 is a great laptop and a good tablet, but is that good enough? Is it really the tablet that can replace your laptop?

For reference, I’m reviewing the middle-of-the-road Intel i5 model with 256 gigabytes of storage and 8 gigabytes of RAM.
