Is the Microsoft Surface 3 portable? #WillItFit

One of the selling points of the surface 3 is the fact that the tablet works amazingly like a laptop, and is extremely portable due to its small size and light weight.  I tested this theory… (apologises for the quality of photos, these were taken from my cell phone..after a few whiskey’s)

So let’s play…#WillItFit

Question – Will the Microsoft Surface 3 fit into my bookshelf? #WillItFit

Answer – Yes…But I went and made a coffee afterwards and it took me ages to find it, in amongst my books.  Moral of the story..don’t leave your Microsft Surface 3 in your bookshelf.

Answer – to be fair I’ve got the Surface 3 long ways, and if I had put it sideways, it would have just fit.  But it would’ve been like me squeezing into my jeans, once I’ve got my legs in, that’s it, they aren’t coming out until at least I go to bed.   Anyways I digress…the answer is no. It doesn’t fit.

Question –  Will the Microsoft Surface 3 fit into my big purse that I carry my entire life in?

Answer – Yes.  Same issue as my bookshelf, I also lost the surface 3 in amongst here.  Bonus though, I found my lipstick that I lost last year (see below)

Answer – Yes, the Microsoft surface 3 fits in my washing basket and I would like you to note there is no washing in my basket…cause I am a clean geek and appreciate freshly cleaned laundry that smells of lavender.

Question – Does the Microsoft Surface 3 fit on my freshly washed lavender smelling pile of laundry that is not yet put away?

Answer – Yes it does. Im a clean geek though…not a tidy geek #DontJudgeMe

Question – Does the Microsoft Surface 3 fit into an art gallery exhibition?

Screen Shot 2015-06-13 at 4.49.53 pm

Answer – Yes the Microsoft Surface 3 fits into an art gallery exhibition, when the curators and security aren’t looking. It also looked quite nice as if it was its own art piece.

Question – Will the  Microsoft Surface 3 fit on a water cooler?

Answer – There is nothing worse than when you are carrying around your laptop, you get thirsty and there is no table to put your laptop on. Microsoft have solved your problems by making sure the surface 3 can fit nicely ontop of a water cooler.   So yes it does fit . #FirstWorldProblems

Question – Does the Microsoft Surface 3 fit on an industrial enterprise printer?

Answer – This was quite a squeeze, but it just managed to fit.

Conclusion – The Microsoft Surface 3 is portable…extremely portable. For a portability out of 10, I’d give it a 10.

What actually makes the surface 3 more attractive than buying a laptop is its weight. Carrying around a laptop in a laptop bag can cause what I call the tech swag. When you carry around your laptop on one shoulder that results in your walk looking like a geeky version of a gangster swag.

The lightness of this laptop/tablet is only one of the qualities that the Surface 3 has.
