There’s no doubt in our minds that the Surface Pro 3 was wildly successful. In fact, with its flagship tablet, Microsoft went so far as to inspire its OEMs to make their own award winning 2-in-1s in a similar vein. It shouldn’t come as a surprise then that when the next iteration rolled out, the […]
Better-than-full-HD monitors are becoming cheaper with the average price of 4K models dropping markedly compared to just two years ago.
