Seattle Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman and wide receiver Doug Baldwin will be meeting and greeting shoppers Saturday afternoon at the Microsoft Store in Bellevue Square — part of a series of promotional activities for the Surface Pro 3.

Baldwin and Coleman are scheduled to appear from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Family activities are scheduled from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. There will also be prizes and giveaways.

It’s all part the “Summer Celebration” events that 10 Microsoft Stores across the country are holding Saturday t0 mark the launch of the Surface Pro 3 last week.

The Surface Pro 3 is the latest version of Microsoft’s first branded computing device, and one that Microsoft is positioning as a tablet that can replace your laptop. The company is even offering up to $650 in Microsoft Store credit for people who trade in certain MacBook Air models and purchase a Surface Pro 3. The offer is good until July 31 or while supplies last.

Here are some reviews of the Surface Pro 3 from The Seattle Times, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, CNET, The Verge, Engadget, Gizmodo, Ars Technica, and AnandTech.
