(ZDNet) – The newly announced Surface Pro 3 is the best tablet from Microsoft yet produced. Increasing the screen size to 12 inches allowed stretching out the inner components enough to make it thin (0.36 inches) and light (1.76 lbs). This makes it a reasonable size for a tablet and an even better size for a laptop.

The message from Microsoft is clear: The Surface Pro 3 is a laptop replacement that is also a tablet. The laptop replacement part requires one of the snap-on keyboard covers that Microsoft doesn’t include with the tablet purchase. The newest Type Cover is pretty decent for laptop use, although falling short of real laptop keyboards, according to reviews.

What would turn the Surface Pro 3 into a real laptop replacement is a full keyboard dock. These have been around for a while and now that the Surface Pro 3 is thin and light enough, Microsoft could produce one.
