  • While the original Surface RT had a lot of issues Microsoft really delivered when it

  • came to the Surface Pro 3. Now weve got a smaller and cheaper version but is the Surface

  • 3 worth it? Looking at the design Microsoft has a nice looking package here. It’s solidly

  • built out of magnesium and it feels durable enough to handle normal wear and tear easily.

  • We now have a 3 by 2 aspect ratio which goes a long way in making the Surface more usable

  • as a tablet, it’s still good for watching video but it’s now actually usable in portrait

  • mode. Youll also find the built-in kickstand and this is a big part of the Surface. Pair

  • it with the Type Cover and youve got a device that transforms from tablet to laptop

  • in a few seconds. It resembles the iPad smart cover but on top of protecting the screen

  • youve got a surprisingly decent keyboard. Pop open the kickstand and this is a pretty

  • decent little laptop although the stand can be a little uncomfortable to use on your lap

  • after a while. As you might expect there’s not a ton of travel and it’s slightly smaller

  • than a normal keyboard but it’s totally usable and the addition of adjustable backlighting

  • is a nice touch. There’s also a trackpad tucked below the keyboard, it works well but

  • it’s almost comically tiny. Youve got the touchscreen as well but I found myself

  • falling back to the trackpad quite a bit when using the normal desktop. The biggest problem

  • with the Type Cover is price, it runs a steep $130. The Surface is totally usable with a

  • USB or Bluetooth keyboard but the Type Cover really completes it which makes it basically

  • a must have. Unlike previous models the Surface 3 is running full Windows 8.1 that’s upgradable

  • to Windows 10 later on. That means you can run basically all Windows apps like Chrome

  • and that’s a huge advantage. For a more tablet-y experience there’s the Modern UI

  • which is much more touchscreen friendly and the app ecosystem is getting better but I

  • spent the majority of my time on the normal desktop. Windows might not be the best tablet

  • OS but it’s easily the best option if you want to get work done. Performance wise this

  • is definitely closer to the tablet side of things, weve got a quad core Intel Atom

  • x7, two gigabytes of RAM and 64 gigs of storage which can be expanded with a MicroSD card.

  • For $100 more you can double it to four gigabytes of RAM and a 128GB drive which is pretty reasonable

  • however throw in the Type Cover and the Surface can start to get expensive. The Atom is reasonably

  • powerful, it’s slower than something like an Ultrabook and you won’t want to spend

  • all day in Photoshop but it’s good enough for lighter use. It’s definitely not a gaming

  • PC but you can play some lighter titles like Minecraft and League of Legends if you don’t

  • mind playing on lower settings. The Surface does have a good selection of ports, weve

  • got USB 3.0 which is useful since with full Windows you can plug nearly anything in and

  • it should work no problem. You can also power an external monitor up to 1440p using Mini

  • DisplayPort and there’s a MicroSD card slot for expanding your storage tucked behind the

  • kickstand. For charging there’s a MicroUSB port and while having a standard port is nice

  • it charges slowly. Very slowly. With the included 13 watt adapter it takes hours to fill up

  • the battery and even longer if youre using the tablet. Battery life is good enough to

  • get me through a full day of moderate use but when it comes time to plug it in youre

  • going to be waiting a while. Get to the display and you won’t be disappointed. It’s a

  • 10.8 inch panel with a resolution of 1920 by 1280, it’s got great color and gets pretty

  • bright although I did notice the auto brightness can sometimes get a little confused in darker

  • environments which can be distracting while watching video. The Surface also sports a

  • pair of front facing speakers hidden away on either side of the display. They don’t

  • get as loud as I’d like but they sound better than something like the iPad with side or

  • rear firing speakers. The Surface 3 is rocking a 3.5 megapixel front facing camera and it’s

  • actually surprisingly decent. So it’s more than good enough for things like Skype and

  • video calling and the rear facing camera is actually not too bad either, well as long

  • as you don’t mind carrying around a PC to take pictures with anyway. The Surface 3 is

  • a good tablet. It’s also a good laptop. The problem is it’s not really a great laptop

  • and it’s not really a great tablet either. At $500 it can do a lot more than most tablets

  • but add the Type Cover and upgrade the storage and it’s solidly into laptop territory.

  • It’s not for everyone but if you want a tablet that can get work done the Surface

  • 3 is worth it.
