Microsoft has announced the Surface 3 which is the latest addition to the Surface family.

The Surface 3 is a sleek, thin, and portable tablet that works as a laptop. This version of the Surface is more affordable and it’s the thinnest and lightest version to date.

Compared to the Surface Pro 3 it is smaller and feels really intuitive and solid when using it as a tablet.

It also uses the same 3:2 aspect ratio with incredibly accurate colors and clarity from even the widest viewing angles.

It features a 1080p webcam in both the front and rear cameras. It also has very long battery at ~10 hours which should carry you through the day on a single charge.

What’s unique about this device is you don’t have to compromise, it can be used as a tablet yet when you click on the keyboard it works just the same as a laptop.

It includes USB 3.0 port which can be used for connecting any USB device such as a external hard drive or a mouse. It also has a Mini DisplayPort, and a microSD card slot.

So what is the difference between the Surface 3 and the Surface 3 Pro?

Well to put it simply, if you need something for very demanding applications such as video editing or 3d modelling, then you want the power and performance of the Pro version. If you just need something for everyday use like Office, browsing the internet, watching videos, casual games and entertainment, then you can save and go for the new Surface 3. It will deliver everything you need.
