Microsoft's Next Surface Tablet Could Be A Game-changer - Nasdaq.com

Generally speaking, companies that generate that kind of monstrous cash flow have to be doing something right (and Microsoft does plenty right). However, one of the most controversial -- and costly -- moves Microsoft has made in recent years is try to compete directly in the tablet market with its Surface line of products. Its first Surface, known as Surface RT, sold so poorly that Microsoft needed to take a $900 million inventory writedown on unsold Surface RT tablets. The follow on to the original Surface RT -- dubbed the Surface 2 -- didn't seem to do all that well either despite significant improvements over the prior generation model, likely hindered by the fact that it couldn't run most full Windows 8.1 applications. However, that could all change with the next-generation Surface. Surface Pro 3 isn't quite there Microsoft's recently launched Surface Pro 3 contains an Intel Core processor and runs full Windows 8.1, so -- for some users -- it lives up to Microsoft's marketing message that the Surface Pro 3 can replace a traditional laptop.
