A great new tablet deal started today, with a Surface 3 sale that brings the price down from $499 to $399 on the entry level model, and $100 off every other Surface 3 model too:
So the Microsoft Surface 3 deal applies to all models, from 64GB to 128GB, Wi-Fi or 4G LTE models. And there’s no catch on this tablet either, the Surface 3 sale is just a plain good price cut with no ifs or buts.
So those are good news, since the Surface 3 is a great Windows 10 tablet in itself. It has a very crisp 10.8-inch ClearType screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1280 with a 3:2 aspect ratio (same screen ratio as Surface Pro 3). The screen also has 10 point multi-touch, and digitizer support with specific support for the Surface Pen digitizer in particular.
Surface 3 is powered by the 64-bit quad-core 1.6 to 2.4 GHz Intel Atom x7-Z8700 processor, which is then coupled with choices of 2GB or 4GB of LP-DDR3 RAM (1600 MHz), depending on the storage option you order it with, which are either 64GB or 128GB of storage with microSD card support up to 128GB.
This tablet has complete dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi support, Bluetooth 4.0, a 3.5MP front camera while there’s also a 8MP rear camera with autofocus, and they can both record 1080p video. It has stereo speakers with Dolby Audio technology, and a built-in mic. Sensors are ambient light sensor, a proximity sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer. It also has a 10 hour long battery life, so nothing to complain about there either.
A full size USB 3.0 port is on board this tablet too. Other ports counts a Mini DisplayPort, a micro-USB charging port, a headset jack, and a cover port.
Microsoft Surface 3 also ships with 64-bit Windows 10, Office 365 Personal which includes 1TB OneDrive cloud storage for free, and 60 Skype world minutes free each month for 12 months. Other software and apps included with Microsoft Surface 3 includes Drawbord PDF, which let’s users draw with the Surface Pen directly to PDF files.
