The Surface Pro 3 is Microsoft’s third attempt to reinvent the laptop and, as you’d expect, it’s also the company’s best design thus far. Upon first impression, its size and form factor might seem all out of sorts; it’s huge for a tablet, yet almost too skinny and bare to be a laptop. But the more you settle in, the more you become with familiar with what the Surface Pro 3 offers, the more it all makes sense. Maybe I don’t need a laptop and a tablet after all.

Sony has never really been a tablet forerunner. The company has offered some decent slates in the past, but nothing you’d urgently recommend to a friend. The Tablet Z was good—but nobody remembers you for being mediocre. Example: we recognize the Kindle Fire HDX because it offers a solid experience highlighted by a unique service in Mayday; the Nexus 7, meanwhile, is important because of its affordability and powerful specs. The iPad is the obvious tablet emperor, but even that crown has lost some of its sheen, giving way to a relentless Android invasion. That said, can Sony’s latest tablet step up and finally cement its status as a bonafide competitor?
