Overview

Campus legend

From keeping you organised to helping you take insane notes, the versatile Surface Pro 3 makes life at school a breeze. With a 12-inch Full HD touchscreen and the versatility to be used either as a laptop or tablet, it's the perfect device for schoolwork and play. Plus, it's super-slim and feather-light—only 0.63 inches thin and 800 gs — so it won't slow you down when you're on the go.

Note-worthy

Taking notes has never been this easy. Or fun. Type notes just like you would on a laptop, or handwrite them as naturally as you would on paper with the included pressure-sensitive Surface Pen. With a keyboard that folds back, Surface was designed to feel like a notebook in your hand. Use OneNote as your digital notebook and easily share your notes with classmates. You can even record lectures with the rear-facing 5MP camera while you type on the split screen.

Up all night

Surface Pro 3 stays charged for those all-night cram sessions. You might be wired, but it doesn't have to be. It's also great for those jam-packed days of back-to-back classes when you don't have time to plug in. And when it's time for some entertainment, you'll have plenty of juice for cranking tunes and playing games for hours on end.

Unleash your creativity

Make it your mobile drawing studio. Use it to create movies. Design the next architectural masterpiece. Highlight PDFs directly on screen with the Drawboard app from the Windows Store. It's got the muscle to run heavy-duty creative programs like AutoCAD, Adobe Creative Cloud, and many more. If you can dream it, you can build it with Surface Pro 3.

All work? No way.

Have an hour free between classes? Entertain yourself with apps from the Windows Store. There are thousands to choose from. Surface Pro 3 is also great for playing games, streaming TV shows and movies, and Skyping with family and friends back home.

Ratings and reviews

Rated 5 out of5 by fromGreat replacement for a Laptop / NotebookPurchased this 2 months ago, have not looked back! It is a brilliant device that neatly bridges the gap between a tablet device with a constrained sandbox environment and a full-featured workstation. I use mine every day for work, then take it home at night for entertainment (and the kids).Best aspects include:- The battery life which gets you through the majority of the work day without needing a recharge.- The screen resolution, making spreadsheet usage practical and enjoyable- Infinite position kickstand - I'm always using it on my lap, and the ability to move it slightly to remove the reflective glare of overhead fluoro lights is great- Windows 8.1 Pro - I run Office, Project, Visio for work and Steam, Diablo 3, Plex and Windows Media Centre for home. There's nothing I cannot install on this machine.Problems I've experienced:- Some of the keyboard shortcuts are not indicated on the keyboard. Examples are: Print Screen (Fn + Space), Screen Brightness adjustment (Fn + Del / Backspace), Insert key (There is none - I use it all the time in MS Project) - Once you learn the shortcuts though, it's all good- One USB Port? What a bummer... had to update my mouse & headset to a Bluetooth one - the Sculpt Comfort mouse is a good budget mouse http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-au/p/sculpt-comfort-mouse/H3S-00003- The Type Keyboard is a mandatory accessory. I wonder how many people actually buy it without - and if the need to stock and manage them as spare parts outweighs the margin that is made on the ones sold. They should be bundled - if you are spending $1500 on a tablet, you want a keyboard as well- Scaling when using 2 screens - this is an OS issue, exacerbated by the High DPI resolution on the surface - not all apps can scale between high DPI and low DPI screens properly, and they look a bit Gumby when used side by side.- Had some issues with losing access to my SDXC memory card when switching out of standby (seems like power saving features make it disappear - the fix is to unplug and reinsert it) - My intention was to use external storage to sync OneDrive and music / videos, but there's still plenty of space on the 256 SSD HDD, so it's not a problem yet.Improvements:- It would be great to be able to easily remap SOME of the function keys. I use the media controls and navigation keys all the time (F3, 4, 9-12). I also use F2 a lot to rename files, directories, etc... and F5 to refresh web pages. It's been difficult to "re-learn" using these 2 Function keys in combination with the Fn key.- Bundle the Type keyboard. It's advertised as a Laptop replacement. Sell it like one...- Change the "Keyboard Brightness" functions to be "screen brightness" instead (which - let's face it - you are far more likely to want to change regularly, whereas the keyboard brightness is a set and forget thing).

Rated 4 out of5 by fromtime to say good bye to laptops!This tablet/ laptop hybrid is amazing. I've been using it for around 3 weeks now - it's so beautiful. I bought a mini display port to HDMI cable, connected into T.V. and I didn't even have to do anything - surface pro 3 and my tv somehow worked together and transferred my display to TV. It was the most well defined automated process I've ever seen.The tablet itself is absolutely at its best. It's light, crystal clear and you can carry it around with you any time. Some people argue that it is a little bit heavier than a tablet. Yes it is, but for 12 inch display, and running full Windows 8.1 operating system - this is the sort of tablet I needed. I got a Galaxy note 3 for apps and general use, I don't need my tablet to do general use of activities since Galaxy note 3 takes care of this.The laptop (when you attach the touch cover) is also great, the keyboard is an engineering master piece. I actually enjoy typing on Surface pro 3.Now why do I give 4/5? it's because of the touch pad which is used for cursor navigation. I use my surface a lot, especially in writing documents. The palm detection isn't as great as I expected - every now and then it randomly navigates accordingly to my palm movement. It can get very annoying at times. To avoid this, I turn off my touch pad in my settings - considering the money you are paying, you shouldn't be doing this. I strongly suggest you buy a mouse that goes well with this surface, or master your navigating skills with your fingers (since it is a touch screen) to avoid this.Overall, an excellent device. I would recommend this device to anyone. Well done Microsoft!

Rated 4 out of5 by fromPay once, enjoy for years!I've had my i5 128GB for 6 weeks and I'm loving it. Only problem was forking out $1,200 + keyboard + Bluetooth mouse (which I haven't needed to use at all!) + Extra Harvey Norman insurance (again, i got suckered in at the store and probably need this ... time will tell), so ended up shelling out close to AUD$1,600 ... ouch!Nevertheless, as the financial sting subsides day-by-day, the joys of having my own SPro3 grow proportionately.I got my current ESET anti-virus protection on to this machine no worries. I even got my workplace complete MS Office Pro working. Now i can just go to Outlook and choose between my work account or gmail.com and with both synced to the cloud I can read/write from work, home or anywhere. I take my office wherever I go!Other things that i really like are 1. The keyboard (back-lit, good key travel, full keyboard and excellent hinge); 2. The screen (great aspect ratio, especially in portrait; brilliant clarity, touch sensitive is a must-have feature; 3. The slim profile and light weight with that oh-so useful kick-stand *downside of the kick-stand is that the edge is a bit too sharp if you are resting it on your bare thighs on a hot day; 4. Windows 8.1 works so well for a device like this; OneNote + digital pen is really something new to me but am finding new uses every week;Not so good is the shortage of decent apps as most are configured for Android & iOS. Example: I wanted to t/f my SMH newspaper sub across to this machine but no go as they have yet to make an app for Windows machines.I have noticed it get warm in spots every now and then but seems to cool off and is rarely a distraction. I have never heard the fan at all.I charge it overnight every couple of days and am very happy with the battery life.SUMMARY: Once you pay the top dollar you end up living with an amazing machine. It looks and feels modern with cutting edge design (just like an Apple!), it simply works so well (but could use many more good quality apps) and now that I've junked my home based desktop PC and put aside my iPad1, this is the only machine that I need for work and play, for home and away.If you've got the dough ... do yourself a favour (that right Molly?)

Rated 4 out of5 by fromgreat for digital artists!I bought my Surface about a month ago and I think it's pretty good so far! Its great for most websites and very convenient with the kickstand. Its great for digital art. It works extremely well copying big files over and fairly good for games. The touch screen is fast and clear. For a small laptop/tablet I think its a fantastic gadget to have! As for the accessories I found the buttons on the side of the pen quite annoying. as i would be drawing my finger would accidentally click on them and erase my work (thank goodness for undo) I also found with the keyboard that it would stop responding or would get stuck on caps/shift key. I find the mouse pad quite hard to use and at times it will click things for no reason or not click at all.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromVery portableIt is very portable and fits in a backpack. It weighs quite a bit but not too much. The only main negative is that the surface pen is really weird writing with because the friction is off. It is really hard when you write with a surface pen because it feels way different then pen and paper. Otherwise everything else seems fine so far.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromGreat, but with a few annoying aspectsI love the form factor - it really works as the next evolution beyond traditional laptops and well engineered. The pen & stand work well, but I wish there was better built-in storage for the pen.My main complaint is only one USB port - It's pressured me into buying more Bluetooth devices (mouse, keyboard, headphones), which are not as reliable.I bought the i7 version, and it does become very hot in the top-right corner, even when using it for basic web browsing. I'm always worried when I put it in a bag or case, that it might accidentally wake-up and cook itself in the enclosed space... or even without waking, just from the residual heat after switching it off, it really is that hot.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromGreat but not perfectUpgraded from Surface Pro 2 to 3 and like the bigger screen, pen and docking station. Still a bit buggy with occasional programs closing. Back of Tablet is easily scratched compared to the previous version.
