Bloomberg today posted a video revealing the secret labs inside Microsoft in which Surface tablets are designed. Surface team chief Panos Panay and other key Surface team members are featured in the video talking about the design process of Surface Pro 3. Barely tipping the scales at 1.76 pounds, the new 12-inch Surface Pro 3 has all the power and performance of a premium laptop in a thin and lightweight design. Behold the most natural writing and drawing experience on a tablet thanks to the new Surface Pen. Use the Pen to mark up presentations, sign documents, or enjoy art apps. You can also open a blank OneNote document with a click of the Surface Pen to instantly capture your next idea–even if your device is in sleep mode.

Bloomberg’s Cory Johnson got an inside look at the Surface labs.
