Surface Pro 3

by JamesProvost Wed Dec 31, 2014 2:43 pm

Hey all,

I spent some time with a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 and wrote up a bit of a review on my site: ... lustrators

TL;DR Pretty good, but I didn't like the pen. May try out Wacom Companion.

Anyone have a good mobile workstation?

Hi James,

Did you ever try out the Cintiq companion?

About this time last year my wife was looking for a laptop like the Surface 3. After reviewing her options she settled on the Lenovo think pad yoga. This uses the Wacon technology for the pen. Its been a year and she is still happy with it. They are not making this any more but you should be able to get one still.

I am now trying out the Surface Pro 4. Its a lot lighter than the Lenovo but so far it looks like its working well. In a few weeks I should be able to make a comparison between these two machines.
