If you’ve been reading my posts for awhile, then you already know I love the Surface Pro 3. It is a truly awesome device. The more I use it, though, the more I have come to realize that there are a couple things missing that could really improve the overall experience and functionality of the Surface Pro 3.
I wrote about these crucial missing elements in this blog post:
I have been a fan of the Surface tablet since Microsoft launched the original Surface Pro. As far as I was concerned, the Surface Pro 2 was already “the tablet that can replace your laptop,” but then Microsoft developed the Surface Pro 3. [inlinetweet prefix=”” tweeter=”” suffix=””]The latest Surface Pro is the best one yet, and it is almost perfect except for one thing[/inlinetweet]…maybe two.
Most of my time on the Surface Pro is spent using it more like the tablet that can replace my desktop, because that is how I use it. It sits on my desk in a docking station, connected to a 29-inch ultrawide monitor, full-size wireless keyboard and touchpad, webcam, speakers, printer, etc. While I am working on the Surface Pro 3 in my office, there is virtually no way to tell I am using a tablet at all. For all intents and purposes, I am simply using an Intel Core i5 PC with 8GB of RAM, running Windows 8.1.
Sometimes, though, I leave the office and go mobile with the Surface Pro 3. That is when it becomes more of a tablet that can replace my laptop thanks to the Type keyboard cover. When I am mobile, though, I would often prefer it act less like a tablet that can replace my laptop, and more like a tablet that can replace my tablet.

What do you think? Do you agree the Surface Pro 3 needs these things? Are there other things you feel the Surface Pro 3 should have that I didn’t mention? Let me know in the comments.
