    Microsoft is committed to the Surface lineup.


    Important news following the false rumor about the fate of Surface. Contrary to some click-bait headlines, SP3 has garnered some attention and is doing alright I think.




    Nadella: Microsoft committed to Surface line - Neowin



    It's really amazing to see these devices used more everywhere, not only in ad placement like the NFL and TV shows like the Agents of Shield, Elementary, etc. Also, seeing more people at my work with a Surface or Windows tablet and even my die hard Apple only roommate asking me what the cheapest model there is he can get to use for work, now that his IT has authorized them to be used and he can't use Office like he needs to on his crippled ipad.

    My wife uses her original Surface way more than her iPad, if they bring out a Surface 3 I'll be buying her one. She's got Office on it so she doesn't need the full Windows.

    Of all the people that I know that have one, they actually love it. I guess they'd have to if they paid money for one.

    It really works beautifully if it does what you need. It's going to be even better with the next gen. and I can't wait for S4 and SP4!

    Hi

    I'm pretty sure the Surface 3 came out a while ago!

    Amazon.com: surface pro 3 - Computers & Accessories: Electronics

    Get out your credit card, these things aren't cheap. LOL

    I found this to be an interesting statement;

    As with today's blog post as a whole, Nadella positions the Surface Pro 3 as a do-everything device for enterprise customers. That point is further hit home by a new offer from Microsoft and its retail partners called the "Surface Laptop Replacement Bundle." Through this deal, Microsoft and resale partners will give up to $150 off a Surface Pro 3, Type Cover and Docking Station when the trio are purchased together.
    calling it a "Surface Laptop" replacement, has it dropped it's tablet status then?

    That's the name of the bundle. Not the Surface.

    Hi there

    At work with a Docking station and a large external monitor I find the SP3 WAY more useful than a "standard" Laptop. What is also great if you've ever been to one of those "Consultant " type I.T meetings where people seem to have masses of cables and large laptops and "squabble" over the 4 electrical outlets in a room of say 15 people then with the SP3 you are really Laughing.

    Also when you need your presentation / power point demo / excel sheet or whatever it's so easy being able to connect to the conference / meeting room monitor WIRELESSLY from your seat without having to shift a laptop over a dozen bodies around a long table and plug in a cable to the monitor. !!

    I'm sure you've all been to or experienced those types of meetings.

    Travelling too - great in tablet mode for watching a movie etc. The screen size is fine too -- big enough to be useful while not too big as to lose portability.

    OK it might be expensive - but I LIKE mine and I don't bother taking laptops any more on the road -- I'm using old laptops at home now for testing things like W10 etc.

    Cheers
