5 Reasons For

Microsoft Has Good Reviews for Its Tablets

Tablet computers manufactured by Microsoft have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all tablet computers (not just tablet computers) and found that Microsoft also has good reviews across its entire range.

Just Released Four Months Ago

The Surface Pro 3 was only relased by Microsoft four months ago.

Fairly Large Internal Storage Capacity

At 512 gigabytes, the Surface Pro 3 has a fairly large internal storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec tablets that are a comparable age to the Surface Pro 3. The internal storage capacity of newly released tablet computers range from 4GB to 1.1TB, and the average internal storage capacity is 120GB.

Chart Edit

Quite Large Internal Memory

The internal memory of latest similar spec tablet computers range from 1GB to 16GB, and the average internal memory is 3.8GB. With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 has one of the larger internal memory amongst tablets of this age.

Chart Edit

2160 X 1440 Pixels Display Resolution

The biggest display resolution of the Surface Pro 3 is 2160 x 1440 pixels. That's over three times the display resolution of a 1280 x 800 pixels tablet, which is the most common display resolution. The best display resolution of all tablet computers that came out around the same time as the Surface Pro 3 is 2736 x 1824 pixels and the worst is 1024 x 600 pixels.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Not 3G Compatible

The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is not 3G compatible. Most of the other similar spec tablet computers that came out in the last 12 months are also not 3G compatible.

If you are looking for a tablet that is 3G compatible then you might want to consider the Samsung SM-W708[plb_3831081_price].

Not 4G Compatible

Like most of the other new tablet computers, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is not 4G compatible.

If you want a tablet that is 4G compatible then you might also want to look at the Samsung SM-W708[plb_3831081_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit


The cheapeast recently released comparable spec tablet computers that we found costs £50 and the most expensive costs £2,800. We think that this Microsoft tablet computer looks expensive for a comparable spec tablet computer that was launched in the last 12 months.


With a weight of 800 grams, the Surface Pro 3 is one of the heavier tablet computers that were launched around the same time as the Surface Pro 3 amongst tablet computers of this age. The average weight of new tablet computers is 700g.

The audio on this board sucks, it should have been better than my 3 year old toshiba laptop (based on the built in realtek chip versions) but the realtek software acts weird. I couldn't get it to soun
Mobo failed while my computer was shutdown, but computer was plugged in and usb ports were powered. This may not have been the fault of the motherboard but I doubt it was my psu which is of very good
