Microsoft Surface Is Now Certified for Leading CAD Program

Microsoft's tablet is going where only laptops used to go.

According to Matt Chapman, the product marketing manager for the Surface, the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book have been certified by Siemens for use with CAD program Solid Edge. Why is this a big deal? As Chapman details on the Windows blog:

Taking Surface device along to a client means engineers can review a 3D rotatable image of a piece in real time with no need to go back to base to redesign it. Aside from its lighter weight and versatility, Surface’s pressure-sensitive Surface Pen, touchscreen and long battery life are key advantages to both Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book.

This is another real-world example of Microsoft positioning its product focus around an increasingly mobile computing environment.
