While the Surface Pro 3 features Core i3, i5, and i7 processors like the MacBook notebook line and a similarly sized 12-inch display, the non-Pro Surface 3 tablet sports a smaller 10.8-inch display closer in size to the iPad Air 2’s 9.7-inch screen. Microsoft’s new consumer tablet runs Windows 8.1 with Windows 10 planned in the future for free and includes “a full-size USB 3.0 port, a Mini DisplayPort and a microSD™ card reader.”
As for the new Chromebit device, Asus will ship the first HDMI stick running Chrome OS, Google’s cloud-based app operating system, later this summer. The Chromebit stick will connect to existing desktop computers to provide the Chrome OS experience with a focus on upgrading education and business computers to Google’s solution.
