The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 has been on the store shelves for a little while now, but mainly in the Core i5 version. On Friday, Microsoft announced that the Core i3 and Core i7 versions of the Surface Pro 3 are available in the Canada and United States, further helping sales.
Critics from all ends of the tech spectrum have reviewed the Surface Pro 3, and while the reviews were great, many wondered about the slower & faster versions of it. With the announcement of the i3 and i7 Surface Pro 3 units, critics and users can get a crack at these units.
The Core i3 Surface Pro 3
The Core i3 Surface Pro 3 is the entry level Surface Pro 3, and while it might be the slower of the three versions, it is certainly fast enough for most users needs. It has all the benefits of the Surface Pro 3 lines, and is one of the fastest Core i3 devices on the market for users of all needs.
The Core i3 Surface Pro 3 is meant for students on the go, and is perfect for a mobile professional who doesn’t need the fastest of Surface Pro 3 machines. At an entry point that competes with the Apple iPad on its higher end configuration, the ability to run all Windows programs on it makes it a steal.
Core i5 and Core i7 Units
The Intel Core i5 with Turbo Boost Technology gives the Windows Surface Pro 3 a lot of muscle and speed behind it. It is the main machine in the Surface Pro 3 line, and is one that has been reviewed the most. It can handle most tasks, include high end graphics, video, and Skype calls for any user.
The latest Core i7 Intel Core processor though is the most powerful Surface Pro 3 unit ever made. It is truly built for the power user, and can handle multiple monitors, video editing, photo editing, conference calls, and more. This is the most expensive model though, but for a true professional, it is the machine of choice.
The Surface Pro 3 line is now complete. Finding one that fits your needs is now a complex choice for many.
