Microsoft today announced the new Surface 3, not to be confused with the Surface Pro 3. How is it different from this?
For starters, the Surface 3 it is a lite version of the Surface Pro 3 and we cannot really consider it as a successor in any sense; therefore, we will have to keep waiting for a model that follows the good path marked by Pro 3.
But that does not mean that the Surface 3 is bad, but rather that it points to a different sector, as the price from 599 and a different format.
This is the new Surface 3
The Surface 3 has a 10.2-inch 1080p resolution screen, and while not as big as the Pro 3, it still runs a full version of Windows 8.1 and brings a one-year subscription to Office 365, the office automation service, as a gift. Cloud. Therefore we say the definitive farewell to Windows RT.
Inside it has a processor 1.6 GHz IntelAtom x7, and although the Atom range has never been characterized by its power, it has done it for not needing a fan, which has allowed us to create a thinner tablet (8.7 mm), and with a battery that lasts 10 hours playing video.
We can get a Special touch pen for Surface 3 by 49. It also has its own Type Cover, the keyboard that also serves to protect the screen while we carry the tablet, for 129 eurosms. In addition, there will also be a version with 4G LTE connectivity to connect where we want.
