We’re already a quarter of the way into 2015, and we’ve already witnessed the duo of major tech events, CES and MWC, as well as a private event by Apple and new device launches by Xiaomi. Plenty of new tech is coming your way, fresh out of the 2015 oven. After our brief hiatus in preparation for our examinations, we’ve decided to compile a list of the new tech that’s coming your way. So sit back and take your time at perusing through this list. If you’re looking for brand new devices to purchase, look no further.
Singapore— March 31, 2015 — Microsoft Corp. is introducing a new Surface, the Surface 3. Like Surface Pro 3, it’s a tablet that can replace your laptop but is thinner, lighter and even more affordable. Powerful and efficient, Surface 3 is optimised to run full Windows and Office and features long battery life. The ability to run Windows apps and the versatile pen experience1 — great for taking notes or marking documents — make Surface 3 ideal for students, schools and anyone looking for a portable device to get things done. Starting at just a suggested retail price of S$748, Surface 3 packs performance and value into an elegant, lightweight design.
You might have already heard about Microsoft’s line of Surface tablets. Third generation on, Microsoft boldly claims that they have finally made a “tablet that can replace your laptop”. We’ll reserve our judgement until we get our hands on a review unit, but for now one thing’s for sure: This is a device that’s great for students.
We’ll give you the top 5 reasons why students should seriously consider investing in one of these devices, but here’s the summary: It’s an 800 gram tablet that’s as powerful as any other Ultrabook out there. And it’s (relatively) affordable too.
We’re down at the Red Dot Museum in Singapore where Microsoft is about to showcase their latest tablet-ultrabook hybrid, the Surface Pro 3, after giving the Surface Pro 2 a complete miss. It’s dubbed the tablet that can replace your laptop, and it’s a pretty good deal at roughly $1500 SGD for the i5 128GB version (plus type cover), and we can’t wait to get our hands on it over at the event.

When Microsoft sent out invites for its Surface event in New York, everyone was expecting it to unveil a Surface Mini; after all the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 are only 8 months old, and for those of us living outside the United States (like us here living in Singapore), the Surface 2 is a fairly new product, launching on local shores just a couple of months back on March 14th, while the Surface Pro 2 still isn’t here yet.
To say that the announcement of the Surface Pro 3 was unexpected would be an understatement. So why did they do it? And more importantly, is the Surface Pro 3 too little too soon? Continue reading “Was the announcement of the Surface Pro 3 too soon?”
It seems that the Surface Pro 2 will not be coming to Singapore at all. After the unveiling of the Surface Pro 3 (specs, pricing, and pre-order link here), Microsoft Singapore’s online store had been redesigned to feature only the RT-running Surface 2 and the newly-announced Surface Pro 3.
The Surface Pro 3 has been announced, and it’s up for pre-order on Microsoft Singapore’s online store right now. Seems like Microsoft is skipping bringing the Surface Pro 2 to Singapore altogether. So what exactly is new and how much does it cost?
