Here's what I think are the two best Surface Pro 3 features:
- It's only 9.1 mm thick, the thinnest Intel Core product on the market today.
- The full-friction kickstand. It apparently too Microsoft three year to develop this hinge.
My worry is heat.
The top-end Surface Pro 3 features a Core i7 processor, and even at the lower end Microsoft felt it necessary to not go with a fanless design and pop a fan into the Surface Pro 3. I worry that this tablet is going to run warm. OK, not warm, but hot. Too hot.
Consumers aren't used to a sizzling tablet belching out fiery air from vents. Microsoft demoed Photoshop running on this, but I know how hot my Mac gets running that app, and that's certainly too hot to hold comfortably.
I hope Microsoft has got the thermals worked out on this.
