Rated 5 out of5 by fromPerfect for students, teachers, researchers & moreThe Surface 3 is perfect for students, teachers, researchers and families. This has replaced my iPad, laptop and even my Wacom Bamboo pen tablet as its all in one device with excellent value. The iPad is not very productive when it comes to heavy and demanding research work as its more of an entertainment device than a productivity device. With Office 365, and the ability to run almost all your favourite desktop apps as there is more versatility in getting work done efficiently and easily. I highly recommend the Surface Pen and Cover Type Keyboard with Surface 3.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromSad to say, a little disappointed.Bought the Surface 3 128GB LTE, sadly frequent crashes and constantly freezing from the get-go. Spoke to the store within the first week where i bought it, they didn't have a clue!, unfortunately i took the soft approach and persevered even updated to the latest firmware to no avail. Often difficult for the tablet to start up at times and after 6 weeks from new it won't switch on at all now so it's back with them being sent away for repair/replacement/refund, hope they give me my money back.I should have invested in the extra cost of the Surface Pro (but i wanted a LTE version!). Maybe mine was just a bad-apple!

Rated 4 out of5 by fromGreat Product But...I am generally an Apple user and it just did not work as I expected. Maybe I did not give it a fair amount of time to try it. The product felt a little clunky but the build quality is excellent. Keyboard seems a little flimsy for the money but the pen was superb. I am now in a position whereby I want to buy a new tablet but don't want to be completely reliant on Apple so I am stuck! I think I sent it back way too early so now regretting it. I am sure given time it would have improved my opinion. Don't make the same mistake I did, give the product time before dismissing it.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromBest Tablet EverReceived the Surface 3 for Christmas and by far has been the best piece of technology that I've owned. Amazing screen quality, good overall performance and an outstanding keyboard. I also love how I got Office 365 for free for a year!!! My only compliant would be that it does take a while to charge, however, I know this wouldn't be a problem for most people. Much better than an iPad because the Surface 3 runs full Windows, there is a USB port and Mini Display Port, and it has a bigger screen with pen input. I like the 3-stage kickstand becuase it has multiple purposes. When doing homework, I plug the Surface into a secondary monitor enhancing the use and it never dropped a frame. This is definitely the best tablet on the market and easily one of the best ultrabooks behind the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book..

Rated 5 out of5 by fromMac User who switched!I owned a MacBook and iPad and switched to the Surface 3! Love it, so light and saves me carrying a massively heavy back around with me. Great for tablet stuff such as watching videos, internet etc, then amazing to use as a laptop for Photoshop work. (That was why I had to carry a laptop and tablet as iPad couldn't handle proper Photoshop.)You can even run iCloud so have all my Mac bits on here too.100% recommend this. Runs all apps fast too.

Rated 4 out of5 by from4G LTE model has GPSI really wanted a Pro model, or perhaps the new Surface Book, to have a 4G LTE version available, because many people don't realise this but if the device has a 4G modem built in it usually has GPS built into the device also since these two features are commonly manufactured within one embedded chip. I am glad that I chose the 4G model since I can now utilise it for navigation without any internet connection (Mobile or WiFi), I just need to download some maps. Also there is a security feature in windows 10, when enabled the device will upload its GPS location to your Microsoft account periodically when connected to the internet. So if you lose it you have a little extra security in the fact that you may be able to log into your account and see its last reported location on the map.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromAs good as a laptop better than a desktopBought this a few weeks ago and Glad I did. It's so easy to attach/unattached the key board. The display is crystal clear and I love Windows 10.It's great to have Bluetooth which my old desktop didn't. The machine us speedy and looks good and I love the pen and case which came with the bundle.The case is very good quality, easy to use and protects the machine very well.Overall, I'm extremely happy so far with my purchase.
