1 Reason For

Microsoft Has Good Tablet Reviews

Microsoft is one of the better rated tablet computer manufacturers according to average expert and user reviews, and Microsoft also has good reviews for its i7-4650U processor tablets.

4 Reasons Against

Not 3G Compatible

The Surface Pro 3 is not 3G compatible, although it is worth noting that most of the other i7-4650U processor tablets that have been available for around the same time as the Surface Pro 3 are also not 3G compatible.

Chart Edit

Not 4G Compatible

Most tablets that are a comparable age to the Surface Pro 3 are not 4G compatible. The Surface Pro 3 is no exception to this as it too is not 4G compatible.

Chart Edit

Very Small Internal Storage Capacity

At only 128 gigabytes, the Surface Pro 3 has a fairly small internal storage capacity compared to most of the other i7-4650U processor tablets that have been available for more than a year. The smallest internal storage capacity of i7-4650U processor tablets that have been available for a comparable time to the Surface Pro 3 is 120GB and the largest is 520GB.

If you are looking for a larger internal storage capacity then you might want to look at the Microsoft Surface Pro 3[plb_3823262_price] (512GB) which also has a higher rating.

Very Heavy

When compared to other tablets of this age and type, the weight of the Surface Pro 3 of 800 grams is one of the heaviest. Across all the comparable spec tablet computers that have been around for around the same time as the Surface Pro 3 the weights range from 790g to 800g.

3 Other reasons to consider the Microsoft Surface Pro 3

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when Microsoft released the Surface Pro 3.

Average Screen Size

With a screen size of 12 inches, the Surface Pro 3 has a relatively average screen size compared to most of the other tablet computers that were launched around the same time as the Surface Pro 3.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 12" tablets currently available including because of it's better review score, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3[plb_3823262_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Rear Camera Resolution

With a rear camera resolution of 5 megapixels, the Surface Pro 3 has a fairly typical rear camera resolution compared to most of the other tablet computers of this spec and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 5MP rear camera resolution tablet computers currently available including the Microsoft Surface Pro 3[plb_3823262_price] which has better reviews.
