Verge score: 8.0

Microsoft says the Surface Pro 3 is the first tablet that can really replace a laptop. Like prior Surface Pro tablets, it has the specs of a laptop on the inside and the face of a tablet on the outside. Its kickstand is now able to prop the tablet up throughout its range of motion, and an improved stylus makes writing on the Surface more appealing than ever.
