New Delhi: Microsoft launched Surface Pro 3 at an event in New York on Tuesday.
The company says the device has successfully combined the best products in tablets and laptops in one gadget.

Even though the tablet uses a Core I processor, it's cool to run.
Microsoft claims it is the thinnest (9. 1mm)
Devices with Core I processors.
"The product we announced today has been in production for three years.
To make it light and powerful is a huge challenge-in part because the power processor of power Surface Pro 3 needs to cool down . . . . . . We have invented a new fan technology that is 30% more efficient than previous solutions.
The new thinner fan cools down a series of wings placed around it, rather than draining the exhaust gas through the passage.
"Without creating space for this channel, you can make the Surface Pro 3 thinner without sacrificing performance," Panay said . ".
