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.

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

Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent tablet. I’ve previously had a Surface Pro 1 and a Surface 2 (RT) and I wanted a replacement. I am a software developer so have a powerful laptop at work. I bought the i3 Surface Pro as I thought it would be more than enough for home use, and it is. I bought mine and it had a 2 year guarantee but I just missed out as John Lewis are now selling them with a 3 year guarantee. The good: It works just like any normal Windows 8.1 computer. The tablet form is excellent – I didn’t buy the expensive keyboard as the on screen keyboard works well for general surfing. The kick stand is a major plus. The battery life is excellent, I haven’t timed it exactly but I can use it for 8 hours easily. The pen is useful in desktop mode but not really needed in the Modern Windows view. I am happy with the single USB port as I don’t need to connect anything. It works well with my wireless printer. The fan has not come on once so no noise problem. I have not had any speed issues so am very glad I didn’t waste money getting the i5 or i7. The bad: The storage of 64gb is too small really as Windows takes up a fair amount and after all the Windows updates were completed there was only 28gb left. I could get rid of some preinstalled software if the remaining space gets used. It doesn’t come with Office and that takes another 4gb of storage. The headphone volume is quite low, it was the same on my original Surface Pro 1 weirdly though the RT was really loud. The Windows button is in a terrible place as I’m constantly pressing it accidentally just holding it, even more so because I’m left handed and hold it with my right hand. Overall I'm very pleased with it. 28 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by By far the best tablet/PC on the market This tablet/PC is by far the best on the market. I only got the i3 version as this is more than enough power for what I wanted to do on my tablet/pc and so far I have been very impressed with it. So far every bit of software I have thrown at it the Surface 3 has not had an issue. I have been using Cad, Emulators and even VM software and it has yet to struggle to perform. Anyone wanting to replace there laptop and tablet should look at the Surface Pro 3 as it really is the all in one device. It is very thin, Quick, Great battery life. Also being full Windows it is not limited like Windows RT or an Ipad and Android tablets. Having a TV out port is create for connecting it to the tv or a 2nd monitor. The USB on the tablet is great for any storage, CD drives ect you would like to connect to the pc. Having the micro SD card slot under the Kick stand is great too. Having a kick stand that now can be set at any angle is also a great fetcher that so far no other tablet can match. The Plug also has an extra usb port on it so you can plug in your phones or other USB powered device to charge. The Pen is also a great tool for applications like OneNote, Photo shop and more. All in all I would recommend this product over anything else currently on the market that includes any tablet, Mac Air or Ultra book. 09 January 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great work tool (and fun to boot) A simple and effective product. If you want basic applications and an easy to use tablet then this is right up your street. I use this as a "laptop" but have found the touchscreen so easy to use that I am now using it as a tablet, the on screen keyboard is good and I only use the other keyboard when sitting at a desk. The Wifi seems really quick and I am (so far) really impressed with the Surface. 17 November 2014
