Kinda like how 7-Up is the UN-Cola, Surface 3 is the UN-laptop, but not in a tasty 7-Uppy kind of way.

Will Oremus at Slate asks us if Microsoft’s new tablet could replace your laptop?
Luckily, he answers it:

It’s hard to know how much of this is my unfamiliarity and how much is Microsoft’s poor design, but this article took me significantly longer to write on the Surface than it would on either my Macbook or my old Windows XP desktop machine. That’s partly because Word crashed and had to restart for no apparent reason, and partly because simple tasks like copying a URL from Internet Explorer and pasting it as a hyperlink in Word took multiple rounds of trial and error.
Sounds pretty awesome.
