I posted this on another forum...but thought people might find it useful here. I haven't seen a comparison like this before with the SP3...so I went ahead and took a few photos comparing screen sizes and readability vs. a full size magazine and various tablets I have around the house. The 3:2 aspect ratio and 12" inches of the SP3 is the way to go for reading full size documents without zooming in/out. If you read PDFs, textbooks, magazines, comics...it's pretty nice to not have to zoom in/out all the time. The SP3 is pretty close to the full size magazine...maybe at ~95% reduction? I'm sure someone can work out the exact math...but that is what it feels like. You could read using a 9" tablet without zooming...but I think you would get a headache after awhile. You definitely need to zoom in on smaller text. In comparison, you don't need to zoom in on the 12" SP3 even for the smaller text. The 5" and 7" will require lots of zooming in/out. Of course, if you have really good eye sight you can read the normal text without zooming on the 5" or 7"...but I'm sure I would get a headache after a few minutes. The font size is much too small at that screen size. A 7" tablet is best for paperback sized books...not magazines. While using in landscape mode helps for 5" and 7", you can see that only the 9" tablet gets close to full size magazine. The SP3 version becomes larger than the full size magazine itself. Hope this comparison helps someone in their decision whether 12" is the way to go. You can load the full size versions in the links under the photos. Sorry...due to lack of proper lighting...the photos are little blurry at full resolution.

You can also download the entire magazine directly from their website for free: http://digital.canadawide.com/i/118159 It would be great to see other people show comparison of an 8" device (like the Dell Venue Pro 8), a 10" device (like the iPad), a 11" device (like the Dell Venue Pro 11) and the Samsung Galaxy Pro 12.2. Please take a photo of your tablet along side the Surface Pro 3 if possible! If you use pages 1 and 34 as your comparison it will be easier to compare with my photos. Thanks!
