Ratings and reviews

Rated 5 out of5 by fromGreat for studentsI bought the surface 3 eight months ago as an alternative to my much larger laptop, so that I could have something more lightweight and portable to take to class. I never imagined that it would replace my laptop, but that's essentially what has happened. Since I'm a science major and much of my time is spent on powerpoint, excel and word. The surface 3 gives you more than enough power to run a few programs at once and screen is big enough so that you aren't straining to see what your'e looking at. The ability to annotate powerpoint presentations and other office documents during class, or use onenote to take notes, and downloading textbooks has significantly cut down on how much stuff I need to have with me on a daily basis, and everything is at your fingertips for review. On an average school day I use the surface for about 8 hours in office programs and usually have enough battery to where I don't need to plug it in to charge.The only problems I have had with the surface 3 are minimal and include issues with connecting to and finding wifi networks, occasional onenote or office crashes and the occasional black screen on startup requiring a hard restart. Other than those minor issues I have no complaints. If you are a college student looking for a lightweight, portable laptop alternative you should seriously consider the surface 3 with the type cover and pen, you won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromFantastic DeviceI traded in an old laptop for this the Surface 3 (124GB of disk space and 4GB RAM) and I found it to be one of the best purchases I have ever made. I have installed Visual Studio 2015 Professional on it for work and I'm able to write and build code with no problems. Larger projects might take a little longer to build on the Atom processor, however it works and I am able to step through my code easily. I also do a lot of art on my Surface 3 and the Surface Pen is ideal for it. Each line is controlled by the pressure I put on the screen with the pen, its incredibly responsive.Pros:Fantastic battery life - It'll usually last me a good 10 hours or more. Some times as low as 9 with heavy internet use (like Remote Desktop through a VPN).Device is light and every well built - It feels nice to hold and I don't feel like I need be extremely gentle with it.Relatively fast for an Intel Atom processor - Apps launch within seconds, even larger apps like office or Visual Studio.Powered by Windows 10 - With the power of a full desktop class operating system on it, it can run anything you throw at it.The pen is super responsive - I do a lot of artwork on my Surface 3 and the pen is super responsive in art apps like Autodesk SketchBook. You can also choose whether or not you use the pen with your left or right hand, being a lefty that's definitely a plus!Expandable memory via SD Card - not much more I can say about this point. :)Cons:Occasionally has an issue where it won't wake from sleep. A simple power cycle fixes this.Does not play games very well - if you're looking for gaming performance you may want to go with the Pro. This can play games but not very well. It will do basic 2D graphical games okay (like Minecraft, Starbound, 1001 Spikes, etc), but avoid 3D games like Skyrim or Fallout 4 on it.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromExceeded expectationsI was able to run legacy bible software that brought a previous Windows tablet to a halt (had a 1 generation older cpu). The only issue discovered is running Bluetooth slows WiFi file transfers significantly. Other than that, this is a awesome tablet, laptop and pen based computer. Battery life is overstated.Buy it, you WILL like it.....

Rated 5 out of5 by fromGreat DeviceA left handed stylus user.I picked up the Surface 3 64GB model about two weeks ago with Windows 10 pre-installed, and with the Surface 3 keyboard on black Friday. I have mainly used it to surf the internet, work with office documents, school, and light video streaming. These were the main reasons I purchased the Surface 3. It performs well for me. I also purchased the Microsoft screen protector and the new surface pen, because it came with replacement tips (not the original Surface 3 pen). I use OneNote a lot. this is the first time I've tried using a stylus with OneNote. I'm a heavy note taker, and I love how OneNote works with the pen. I'm left handed, and it works well for me. The Microsoft screen protector I installed does not interfere with touch, or use of the stylus. it's as if the screen protector was not even there.Since this is a 64GB model, and I'm a OneDrive user, I'm not worried about running out of space on the hard drive. I've even configured my personal folders (documents, downloads, music, and pictures) to be automatically stored on a 32GB micro SD card.This was the perfect model of the Surface family for me. The one thing I'd recommend to anyone making the move for a Surface, is to take the time to set it up right (all the features of a tablet/ stylus etc...). I did, and have no complaints. I'm even satisfied with battery life, as it is good enough for me.I purchased this model, for size, portability, and because it had enough processing power for me.Overall, I'm very satisfied with the Surface 3, stylus, and Surface 3 keyboard.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromFantastic deviceI bought the Surface 3 to replace my high-end Lenovo laptop and my original Surface RT, and I must admit I wasn't sure it would work. I don't do much demanding work (I mostly read, surf, and write long Word documents using a separate reference manager). However, I recently started running agent-based simulations in 3D as part of my research (I'm a college prof). To summarize my experience, I'm very impressed. I have had no problems at all. It works great, is fast, responsive, and beautiful. It runs my simulations with no problem whatsoever. There are, from my point of view, two "problems" with this fantastic machine: (1) it lacks a gps (a potential problem when using offline directions), and (2) it scares the living daylight out of me too frequently. #2 is simply because I'm used to having a laptop - small and "light," but nowhere close to as light as the S3 - in my bag. Pretty much every time I pick up my bag, I think I've forgotten my computer somewhere. That's how light the Surface 3 is...

Rated 5 out of5 by fromBest laptop in tablet formJust got it and I am loving it for functionality reasons. Its fast too (128g). My daughter tried to play "life is strange" game -Steam, at 1300 x 700 resolution it works perfectly and graphics is still awesome, not grainy. Now she wants it too but will get the pro because she wants more than 128g. She was also impressed for the functionality of the Surface 3.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromLove the Surface 3!Have owned the Surface RT and the Surface 2. I was happy with both, but the Surface 3 is the next logical step forward. It does the job without paying the price for the Surface 3 Pro. No complaints at all.
