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

With up to 9 hours of battery life, 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 4 out of5 by fromCrosses boundaries effortlesslyl am both a full time worker and part time student, and I can tell you that I am completely satisfied with the technology, the portability, the convenience and practicality of this device. I am a heavy writer. Hype, I write long hand, I read. While my old Asus EP 11 served well, it was just too heavy. Rest assured, this is a buy you will not regret. My I7 does not overheat, have only heard the fan once during a firmware upgrade. The screen is clear, images pop out at you. The keyboard (should be bundled) is a treat and the scratch pad is 2nd to none.-- a very happy, very satisfied customer.

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 2 out of5 by fromThinking of swapping for an i5Bought this 5 days ago, i7 256its a nice machine, but for the life of me cant get more than 3.5, 4 hours of battery life out of it, just web browsing and occasional video play back, it also frequently hits up and fan starts working while idling, thinking of swapping it with i5 version have heard that performance difference is minimal and much better battery life,

Rated 4 out of5 by fromgreat features.it does get pretty hot when i run any program that requires some gpu activity or updating firmwares etc, but overall great features and excellent in my case. I can see this not being so great for everyone but it will be excellent choice who can actually utilize its full functions.

Rated 3 out of5 by fromBacklight screen bleeding on top right corner ...I just received my SP3 i5 256 8gb yesterday by delivery .. well I could say everything is great except for backlight bleeding on screen .. it's quite bad in my experience for the tablet and laptop products. Should I return this back to factory.
