Positives


High-quality magnesium body, great display, solid audio, comes with a free aluminum stylus.

Negatives


Keyboard is not included, runs hot at times, battery life could be better.


Bottom Line

Surface Pro 3 is one of the most attractive devices Microsoft has ever made. It features a larger screen than its predecessor, as well as a faster processor, making it a worthy upgrade. It is also closer to the company’s vision of having a tablet that can also replace your laptop. If Microsoft decided to include the keyboard with the device, it would make Surface Pro 3 an even better buy. Of course, this tablet doesn’t come without compromises. Battery could be better, and there are only limited number of apps, compared to Android and iOS devices. But, if you like the Microsoft ecosystem, you will certainly enjoy this product.
