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 5 out of5 by fromDoes the job perfectlyI use it for work and it has been great so far, although have had a few issues such as the touch screen not working properly when plugged in. Generally, I am satisfied.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromSurface Pro 3 i5 256gHave had my surface pro 3 i5 256g for a few weeks now, absolutely loving this thing. I have gone from using the desktop pc to this surface only and initially I had my doubts about this device as a replacement for my desktop. So far haven't looked back, and I don't think I ever will. Great job Microsoft. Can't wait to see what you guys release in the future.

Rated 3 out of5 by fromNeeds improvementNice screen resolution.The drive is an SSD drive but really slow compared to my old mybook Air SSD.(~40MB/s only in writing).Heavy to be used as a tablet. Not practical enough to be used as a laptop (cannot stand on your laps).Few bugs. (Especially when combined with the bluetooth surface Arc mouse).

Rated 4 out of5 by fromJamesIt looks to be a very adept device using the latest technology, and compares favourably with Apple devices, given that you have to buy 2 devices to experience what is packed in the Surface Pro 3; touch screen, Microsoft Office, compatibility.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromBugs are everywhereI purchased the 512gb i7 SP3, and i am fairly disappointed in it. The battery life is mediocre and it often overheats. I am noticing the "paint" is coming off (especially near the power jack - even though i bought the dock). Sometimes the touchscreen stops working (others have the same problem but they are on dells, so it might be a windows issue) and this morning my keyboard stopped working (eventually it worked again after a few restarts). I have lost plenty of school work by it randomly crashing/freezing during class. I suppose it is a good excuse for not doing homework :D. Frankly i wish i could recommend this product to anyone, but the problems just make it a pretty bad experience. And why is there only BALANCED in the power options? I had to install Hyper V (i dont know what that has to do with power settings) so i could get POWER SAVER mode so i wouldn't run low on battery during class. And why is the keyboard not full size, looking at the new Macbook and other PCs, it could have been easily done. It is horrible to type on. Also my kickstand is wobbly and loose, it shakes around all the time and i feel like it is broken.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromOverall best laptop/tablet hybrid out thereI purchased this about a month ago and am so happy I did, it being such a light weight tablet makes it so much more productive. Having the 128gb i5 I am very happy with the purchase, well worth it
