Microsoft today launched its Surface Pro 3 review with the help of some of the best software for the device.
We’ve also got a full review of the new Windows 10 Pro.

It also has the ability to run Windows 10 on a 128Gb PCIe SSD, with 64GB RAM and 64GB storage for $799.99.
Microsoft says that all Surface Pro users should be able to use Windows 10 with 64Gb RAM and 256GB of SSDs, though, as long as they don’t want to purchase a 32Gb or 128Gb SSD.
If you’ve been following along with our Surface Pro 2 review, you know that the company made a major change to the design of the Surface Pro series in the new version.
It includes an improved backlit keyboard, a new backlit display and an improved hinge design.
Microsoft has also added a new Surface Pen to the Surface line.
Microsoft also has made a new version of the Start menu that includes a Start button and two new Start menus: the traditional “home” and “taskbar.”
Microsoft also has revamped the interface of the Windows 10 Creators Update and added the ability for users to choose which apps and settings will be available on their devices.
You can now choose between a single Start screen, two Start menus and four different Start screens.
Microsoft’s new “Home” and Start menus are available in both black and white for $299.99, while the traditional Start menu is $119.99 and the traditional taskbar is $59.99 (though it’s available in a color version for $49.99 after a $1,000 credit).
Microsoft’s new Start menu can also now be accessed with a touch-enabled Surface Pen, and it can be used to add multiple Start screens to the same device.
The new Start button also now supports a third-party application launcher, which includes an “always-on” notification bar and the ability “lock your PC to show notifications.”
Microsoft’s “new” Start menu will be the default app launcher for devices with the Creators update.
It will also be available for the upcoming Creators Pro update.
Microsoft has also introduced new Surface settings.
Users can now customize the look of the device with a “color palette,” “glow,” “laser” or “luminance” options.
The color palette allows for a “light” effect and the “glowing” option allows users to use a “full spectrum of color” in their Surface Settings.
The “lens” option gives users the ability use a magnifying glass to highlight specific areas on the screen.
The “lense” option can be turned on by selecting the “Lens” tab from the settings panel.
Users will be able “locate” their devices with this option and can set their device’s color profile.
The new “Color” option lets users control the brightness of the display and the way colors are displayed.
Users also can adjust the brightness in three different ways: “on” (light up all the way), “off” (dimmer in and dim in, then back down to default) and “auto.”
The “Auto” setting lets users choose the color profile that will be used in the background when the device is not in use.
Microsoft also introduced the “Brightness” setting in the “lenses” setting, which can be set to either “bright” or normal.
It’s not clear what “normal” means, though.
The brightness settings have been expanded to include “light off” (dim in the display), “lumen” (luminous brightness) and a “brightness” of 50 percent (maximum brightness).
Microsoft has made the “Lenses” settings even more useful.
You now have three different color palettes that can be adjusted individually for different devices.
Microsoft offers four “lights” for each color palette.
The third color “light mode” can be activated with the “Color-Tone” option.
It is useful for light-sensitive areas like the display or the touchpad, and the third mode can be configured for “normal color.”
Users can also choose between the “Background” and the new “Luminance-Tones” color pallet.
The background color can be modified by selecting it from the “Colors” tab in the Settings panel.
The Luminance tone can be customized
