Microsoft Surface Pro 3

  |   by TabletPCReview Staff

The third-generation Windows 8.1 tablet from Microsoft has a 12-inch, 2160 x 1440 display at a 3:2 aspect ratio. The Surface Pro 3 sports either a fourth-generation Intel Core i3, i5, or i7 processor, 4GB or 8GB of RAM, and 64GB to 512GB of RAM. The device comes with a stylus, but its keyboard is a $130 optional add-on. 

  • Pros

    • Great build; it's thin, light, and sturdy
    • Superb display quality
    • 3:2 display ratio perfectly suited for Windows 8.1
    • As a tablet, its productivity potential is unmatched
  • Cons

    • Keyboard cover sold separately
    • Some annoying design quirks

Quick Take

Like its predecessor, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is the perfect device for the specific user that needs power in an impossibly thin and light design. It's not cheap, however, and the added cost of a proper keyboard cover and Office stings.
