Microsoft announces Surface 3

Microsoft today announced the thinner and lighter Surface 3 which, like the Surface Pro 3, is designed to pack the power of a laptop into a tablet.

The Surface 3 has a big and beautiful 10.8-inch ClearType HD multi-touch display featuring 3:2 aspect ratio. It is powered by the new quad-core Intel Atom x7 processor, and is available in a range of storage and memory configurations.

Like the Surface Pro 3, Microsoft’s new Surface 3 features a striking and durable magnesium design. It also features a three-position kickstand, which makes it easier to use the tablet when working at a desk, sitting on the couch, or even holding in the palm of your hand.

The Surface 3 ships with full Windows 8.1, but users will be able to upgrade to Windows 10 free of charge when it is released. The tablet comes with a one-year subscription of Microsoft Office 365 Personal, including Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, plus OneDrive cloud storage.

Those interested in picking up the Surface 3 can pre-order one right now through, Microsoft stores and select partner retailers. The Surface 3 and accessories will be available to buy from these retailers from May 5th. The Surface 3 will be available from $639.
