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 fromBrilliant Productivity, Surprising Performance.I bought this Device to replace my gaming desktop, I had some doubts as to its ability to play games and run software. As a student I needed both these aspects for both play and study. The i7 model I purchased has been a great surprise, not only did I notice no real decrease in the tablets speed but found it could also run software and even play games (on lower settings). The One note and pen integration is very useful and I use it often. The new keyboard is great to type with and with the friction stand, able to be used in a public environment. My only complaint is the track pad, its often sluggish to respond and I would like to see a new keyboard model come out where this is fixed.Over all this is a great buy, If you're looking for a mobile device that still pack a punch look no further.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromI am loving my Surface Pro 3!I just received my Surface Pro 3 this week and have been loving using it. It's so thin, light and works so well as either a laptop replacement with the kickstand or when just browsing as a tablet on the sofa. The screen is so bright and sharp and its so quick - everything from Office to browsing, casual gaming and Lightroom absolutely flies. I love the pen to annotate, sketch and it makes photo editing so much quicker and easier. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromGreat and getting better all the timeI have had all three Surface Pro models and I have been extremely happy with all of them. Far better than the iPad I had. The new Surface Pro 3 is really remarkable and has so much functionality as well as good looks and light carriage. Very happy indeed.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromGreat! Power of Laptop with Tablet featuresHi! loving my device, if the Touch cover was included and I didn't already have a small issue with part of the screen not working i'd give it 5 stars!Just carried this all over Europe in my camera bag running lighroom and taking the micro SD card was awesome. I really like the Pen! found using it more than the mouse.Thanks for pushing the edge with these devices can't wait to see what you do with the surface4.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromGreat unit with some minor let downsIt's great as a windows computer, but as a tablet? - not so much (IMO and use case). I couldn't see it being really usable without a keyboard on hand.I think when the user and developers adjust to the tablet paradigm - these things will be the only way to go.It did retire my iPad - though it had cellular data - I now just use my phones hotspot. The iPad is now a glorified "gameboy".It runs photoshop (my main use application) but I had to install and configure a 3rd party keyboard to offer commands like ALT as a hotkey (press and lock not press and hold) and various other usful abilities. This allowed the photoshop to work for photo editing without a keyboard (I made my common used macros too ie ctl+z).All in all it feels like an ultrabook with a detachable keyboard - that has useful but not perfect pen and touch screen interface - it requires some customisation. (but... At least you can right?)I'm happyWishlist:fully customisable pen buttons - with some software specific setup options.Some physical (touch) programmable hardware buttons (to make some macro functions) on the tablet itself (like a Wacom companion) perhaps either side of the windows touch button.Built in GPS hardware5v power input option to keep it running with some of the more basic external batteries // or a genuine external battery option2 dedicated USB 3.0 inputsSD slot card reader (has micro)I'm using 3rd party products to make the above happen where possibleThanks

Rated 5 out of5 by fromMost Versatile replacement for your PC or LaptopI was looking around for some time as to whether I purchase a "droid" tablet or stick with my existing laptop. I wanted true versatility and portability all in one with no limitations. For my actual needs, I purchased the Surface Pro 3 I5 128GB SSD with 4GB memory. This device fits the bill in every aspect. Simply Perfect! On the go I use it like a tablet. Its smooth, quick and reliable every time. Set and screen brightness to minimum power saving levels and it still performs well. I also purchased the keyboard cover and docking station. Money well invested. With the docking station, you have a complete replacement solution which makes your PC or laptop redundant. Only draw back.....wish there was provision for 4G. That might appear in a future product release. That's okay, it tethers perfectly, wirelessly via my smart phone. Overall this devices does exactly what Microsoft intended it to do. A well engineered device. Runs better under Windows 10. Love it!

Rated 5 out of5 by fromProductivity plusFantasticly portable and light desktop computer with full tablet functionality. Docking station is essential to run the SP3 as a main desktop - I don't find a need for the additional keyboard as I can make do with the soft keyboard in meetings. The Surface Pen and OneNote are a perfect companion for handwritten notes and this has been once of the major benefits of this form factor.
