Eyeing the New Microsoft Surface Pro 3 as a Laptop Replacement
We really are in the golden age of travel technology. I’m sure I’ll look back on that statement in ten years – or two – and laugh. But the combination of portability and power of today’s laptops and mobile devices is almost absurd.
While I’d love to free myself from the constant tether of the internet, Facebook, and The Daily Puppy, my schedule is always peppered with work requirements no matter where I am in the world. Editing photos, publishing blog posts, answering e-mails, and … whatever it is that I do on social media.
For a while, I toted around an iPad which worked … okay. But it didn’t have (a) the computing power for proper photo editing and (b) a keyboard which, as a writer, I desperately need. So I’ve been lugging a 15″ laptop (a beast of a machine that could probably edit Transformers CGI footage if I asked it to) from destination to destination. But it’s growing increasingly obvious that I needn’t do that anymore.
