Combining the best features of a tablet with essential Windows laptop performance, the Surface 3 from Microsoft is designed to adapt to your needs. A high resolution display, Intel Atom x7 processor and a 3-position Kickstand round out an impressive set of features that make Surface 3 the tablet you’ll want to take with you everyday. The best of a tablet Crafted from sleek magnesium alloy with a smooth ceramic finish, Surface 3 is brilliantly portable, with an ultra-thin profile and feather-light design. The battery life of up to 10 hours ensures you can take it out all day without running out of juice, while an integrated Kickstand with 3 positions is ideal for hands-free entertainment. Atom x7 Surface 3 is powered by a quad-core Intel Atom x7 processor delivering power and energy efficiency to let you run desktop software and your favourite apps, just like on a laptop. The Atom requires less power than similar processors, allowing for a longer battery life and removing the need for a fan to keep it cool, ensuring the Surface 3’s profile is kept as slim as possible. High resolution display With a resolution of 1920 x 1280 pixels, the Surface 3’s 10.8-inch display provides a Full HD Plus picture for exceptional image clarity. Bright, vibrant and full of details, the Surface 3’s screen is ideal for watching movies and editing images. Connectivity The Surface 3 features the latest technology to help you connect with the rest of your technology. Built-in Wi-Fi that’s compatible with superfast ‘ac’ routers will let you hook up to your home network and browse the internet at your leisure. Bluetooth 4.0 LE will let you wirelessly transfer data and stream media to other Bluetooth devices without draining your battery, while a full size USB 3.0 port and micro SD card slot will let you hook your Surface up to other peripherals and storage devices. You can even connect your Surface 3 to a monitor, TV on projector by using the Mini DisplayPort and a compatible cable. See it on the big screen Not only does the Surface 3 include a Mini DisplayPort for connecting to a TV or monitor, but it is also compatible with Miracast technology to help you connect to a bigger screen with no need for extra wires.
