The i5 equipped Microsoft surface Pro 3 is a beast. Referring to the benchmark scores, Microsoft left Tables from other manufacturers way behind in the league.. Lierally proving that the core i5 is an overkill for a tablet, the Surface Pro 3 scored over a staggering 5k which was way over the scores on similar devices from other manufacturers. Though some would disagree with our opinion here, considering the Surface Pro 3 a laptop equivalent and others as mere tablets, The fact is , its powerful, its performing and its killing it !!! But when it comes to being pocket friendly, the one that does justice to your pocket , its always the performance that counts. And Microsoft has been doing that right. You pay for what you desire and frankly speaking, you wont regret it.
