Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Review

6 Reasons For

Microsoft Tablet Computers Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Microsoft tablet computers and also specifically for Microsoft tablet computers and found that in both cases Microsoft had good ratings.

Only Released Five Months Ago

This Microsoft tablet computer was released just five months ago, so it is likely to use more advanced technology than some of the older tablets.

Fairly Large Internal Storage Capacity

The internal storage capacitys of latest tablet computers range from 4GB to 1.1TB. With an internal storage capacity of 256 gigabytes, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 has one of the larger internal storage capacitys amongst tablet computers of this age.

If you are looking for a larger internal storage capacity then you might also want to look at the Microsoft Surface Pro 3[plb_3810957_price] (512GB).

Chart Edit

Very High Front Camera Resolution (numeric)

When compared to other tablet computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Surface Pro 3, the Surface Pro 3's front camera resolution (numeric) of 5 megapixels is one of the highest. The lowest front camera resolution (numeric) of new tablet computers is 0.3MP, the highest is 5MP, and the average front camera resolution (numeric) is 2.9MP.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Not 3G

Like most of the other tablet computers that have been on the market for the last year, the Surface Pro 3 is not 3G.

Chart Edit

Not 4G

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

Chart Edit

Pricey

After checking the price of 87 latest tablets they range in price from £50 to £2,409. We think that this tablet computer looks expensive compared to other latest tablets.

Heavy

The Surface Pro 3 is quite heavy (800 grams) compared to most of the other tablet computers that have been around for around the same time as the Surface Pro 3. The weights of similar spec tablet computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Surface Pro 3 range from 240g to 2.7kg, and the average weight is 670g.

Average Display Diagonal

The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 has a pretty standard display diagonal (12 inches) compared to most of the other tablet computers that were released in the last year.

If you would prefer a larger display diagonal then you might want to look at the Microsoft Surface Pro 4[plb_3874656_price] (12.3").
