Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Not 3G

Most tablet computers that have been on the market for more than two years are not 3G. The Microsoft Surface Pro is no exception to this as it too is not 3G.

Chart Edit

Not 4G

Most tablet computers that have been available for around the same time as the Surface Pro are not 4G. The Surface Pro is no exception to this as it too is not 4G.

If you would prefer a tablet that is 4G then you might want to consider the Samsung SM-T311 Galaxy Tab 3[plb_1955439_price] which is also higher rated.
