Surface Pro 3 blurs the lines between tablet and laptop, packing full laptop specs into a lightweight, versatile form. Featuring a breathtaking 12-inch display, 4th generation Intel Core processor and a long battery life, Surface Pro 3 delivers power, portability and productivity. It’s the tablet that can replace your laptop.

Powered by Intel
The Surface Pro 3 performs like a laptop thanks to its Intel Core i3 processor and 4GB of RAM. Designed for everyday use, the i3 will help you run all of your favourite laptop and desktop programs with fast and responsive performance. It’s been designed for multitasking, so opening several programs at once won’t slow things down. Intel’s fourth generation processors include Intel HD graphics technology, delivering astonishing graphics without the need for a dedicated graphics card.

Work Anywhere
An integrated kickstand and huge battery life makes the Surface Pro 3 easy to take with you and use anywhere. Featuring multiple positions, the kickstand can be easily adapted to your situation, letting you work comfortably at a desk, browse with ease on the sofa or take in a movie on a plane. You’ll be able to use the Surface Pro 3 all day too, thanks to the battery which can last for up to 9 hours of web browsing. With such great battery life, you’ll find yourself tethered to a power socket less and enjoying the freedom to work where you please.

Full HD Plus Touch Display
With a resolution of 2160 x 1440 pixels, the Surface Pro 3’s 12-inch display squeezes in as many dots as possible to deliver a breathtaking picture. Bright, vibrant and full of details, the Surface Pro 3’s screen is ideal for watching movies and editing images. Touch screen technology will let you get hands on with your apps, while the new Surface Pen delivers the most natural and accurate writing and drawing experience yet, letting you take notes, mark up presentations, sign documents or get creative with art apps.

A Full Suite of Connections
The Surface Pro 3 features the latest technology to help you connect with the rest of your technology. Built-in Wi-Fi that’s compatible with superfast ‘ac’ routers will let you hook up to your home network and browse the internet at your leisure. Bluetooth 4.0 LE will let you wirelessly transfer data and stream media to other Bluetooth devices without draining your battery, while a full size USB 3.0 port and micro SD card slot will let you hook your Surface up to other peripherals and storage devices. You can even connect your Surface Pro 3 to a monitor, TV on projector by using the Mini DisplayPort and a compatible cable.

See it on the big screen
Not only does the Surface 3 include a Mini DisplayPort for connecting to a TV or monitor, but it is also compatible with Miracast technology to help you connect to a bigger screen with no need for extra wires. All you'll need is a compatible Smart TV or alternatively, Microsoft Wireless Display Adaptor. This small adaptor plugs into the HDMI port on your TV or monitor and then lets you mirror or extend your desktop, making it easier to share content with others.

Surface Pro 3 comes with 64GB of flash storage, however, the system software takes up a significant amount of this, leaving approximately 36GB available for storing your own files and programs.

Software Included:
Skype Wi-Fi
OneNote MX
Sudoku/Microsoft Number Puzzle
Fresh Paint
Note Anytime

Get the full laptop experience by purchasing the Surface Pro Type Cover, a slim keyboard cover that will transform your Surface Pro 3 into a premium laptop.
