Microsoft launches Surface Pro 3 TV commercial, allows hands-on time in stores

Microsoft has revealed its first advertisement made especially to promote its new Surface Pro 3 tablet hybrid. Rather than have a multitude of dancers clicking-in and generally prancing around the company has decided to focus upon what it wants people to use this device for – as a replacement for your current laptop and tablet combo. Remember at the Surface Pro 3 launch Microsoft emphasised that this updated tablet can “replace your laptop – packing all the performance of a fully powered laptop into a thin, light and beautifully designed device”.

Take a gander at the 30 second commercial above. It certainly makes the Surface Pro 3 appear to look and operate slickly in various environments; in the home, on the way to work and in the office/studio. The ad also highlights the different ways users can work with the Surface Pro 3; using fingers, stylus, keyboard and touchpad. With its new 12.5-inch screen and sleek build the Surface really does look better than ever – third time’s a charm indeed.

As a reminder the Surface Pro 3 is available in a much wider range of configurations than previous models and can be specced with a 4th generation Intel Core i3, i5, or i7 and various amount of RAM and fixed storage. Its new 12-inch screen, adjustable kickstand and new type cover are all supposed to be stand-out improvements on the old model.
