But before we get to that question, a story.

Durability of the Microsoft Surface Pro 3
The Surface Pro 3 is wrapped in a durable magnesium case and the new type cover clicks in and has a double-fold hinge that magnetically locks in to the display. It becomes a keyboard with a laptop-like feel. (I am looking forward to trying this out because one of my biggest complaints about the current Surface is the keyboard. Because it lays flat, it makes typing slightly uncomfortable and the keys sense touch. I really like the feel of clicking my keys.) The keyboard will still act as a screen protector in the Surface Pro 3.
Gaming Capabilities of the Surface Pro 3
While I would be purchasing the Surface Pro 3 for my tween for educational purposes, I know that she and most children her age have other ideas in mind – GAMING. Tween girls and boys alike have to have their games. The Surface Pro 3 promises to improve the gaming experience with its 12″ 2160 x 1440 ClearType Full HD color-calibrated display. It’s lighter, thinner and easier to carry. What does that mean? The Surface Pro 3 should satisfy our casual tween gamers.
The Surface Pro 3 also has another interesting feature – the Surface Pen. The Surface Pen has 256 levels of pressure sensitivity so that it promises to feel like writing with a fountain pen. As a traditionalist who likes her printed books, newspapers and magazines, I’m really interested in this feature.
