Microsoft’s Newest Surface Lap-Tablets Go on Sale


Microsoft’s Newest Surface Lap-Tablets Go on Sale



A little more than two months after its unveiling, Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 is finally available for purchase in all its forms. The latest editions of the tablet include the base model, which sells for $799, and a more high-end version, with a faster processor and more storage, that sells for $1,949.

Available at retailers including the Microsoft Store, Best Buy, and Walmart, as well as online stores including, the Surface Pro 3 is Microsoft’s third attempt at creating a tablet that can double as a laptop for business and power users.

The tablet itself features a super-sharp 12-inch touchscreen and measures a svelte 0.36 inches thick, slightly thinner than a 13-inch MacBook Air laptop.

The Surface Pro 3’s standout feature, beyond its ability to run all Windows-compatible programs, is its built-in adjustable kickstand that lets you stand the tablet up on a desk like a laptop or lay it flat like a tablet.

In terms of specifics, the $799 version of the Surface Pro 3 gets an Intel Core i3 processor and 64 GB of storage. The more expensive model, on the other hand, gets a more powerful Intel Core i7 processor and a whopping 512 GB storage drive.

That’s more than enough space for all your work files, not to mention a few full-length movies to watch during those long business trips.

A midrange $999 Surface Pro 3, which features a Core i5 chip and 128 GB drive, has been on sale since late June.

Though Microsoft markets the Surface Pro 3 as a tablet that can replace your laptop, the slate doesn’t come with a physical keyboard. Instead, you’ll have to shell out an additional $129 for a Surface Pro Type Cover, which features a keyboard and touchpad and doubles as a cover, hence the name.

A stylus is also available for the Pro 3, though that will cost you another $49.99.
