The new Surface Pro 3 is on sale and Microsoft has finally achieved its vision of combining a laptop and a tablet into a device that doesn't have too many compromises. This is simply the best hardware that Microsoft has ever produced and even if you aren't a big fan of Windows, you can at least appreciate the flagship hardware it runs on.

The tablet weighs 1.76 pounds (without the new Type Cover) and is .36 inches thick. The display is now bigger too, it's a nicely-sized 12-inch touchscreen with a tack-sharp resolution of 2160 x 1440. One of our favorite features is the new kickstand, which uses friction and can hold the device up at any angle. The Type Cover has been redesigned too, and is much better than previous models.

But can this device take on the MacBook Air? Can it really replace your laptop? Check out our full review of the Surface Pro 3 to find out. In the meantime, you can see more details about the device in our photo gallery below.
