New Microsoft Surface Pro 3 ad positions it as a better gift for the holidays than a MacBook Air
It is quite telling that the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 squares off in Microsoft's commercials against a MacBook and not the Apple iPad. That's because Microsoft considers its business oriented slate to be more than just a tablet. As the ads say, it is "the tablet that can replace your laptop." It also has some great features and accessories, such as the additional Surface Pro Type Cover. The latter gives the user a laptop quality QWERTY key board attachment.

The latest Microsoft Surface Pro 3 ad comes just as the 2014 holiday shopping season is taking its first breaths. With the commercial's holiday theme comes a version of Winter Wonderland with lyrics revised so that you can sing along about the features found on the tablet, such as the Pen, Kickstand, Touch Screen, USB port and the aforementioned Type Cover.

There have been some mixed signals about just how well the Surface Pro 3 is selling. Rumors that Microsoft was going to drop the Surface line were quickly denied by Redmond. Yet, when CNN was shipped a few units by Microsoft as part of a newly formed partnership, it turned into a huge joke when the Surface Pro 3 slates were used as a stand instead, to prop up reporters' iPads.
