But it shouldn't have worried. While your needs may vary, the Surface Pro 3 instantly catapults Microsoft's hardware into the same league as Apple's well-respected MacBook Air.

I do this many times to see where the competition is with regards to Microsoft's solutions. But I'm also not shy about using non-Microsoft solutions when they're better.
