Surface Pro 3 finally available in UK

Written by Nick Farrell

Better never than late

Microsoft Surface Pro 3 has finally made it to the UK, months after it has been seen in the US. The Pro 3 online store, Currys & PC World, Argos and other high street retail outlets, with a price tag which will make your credit card look unwell, if you decide to buy it.

Starting at £639, the 12-inch tablet is lightweight, at 798g, and comes pre-loaded with Windows 8.1 Pro. It can double as a laptop too, with a detachable Surface Pro 3 Type Cover also available as an optional extra. The tablet features PC-like connectivity, through USB 3.0, microSD and a mini DisplayPort. And the Surface Pen has multiple pressure points to enable the user to draw and write.

The 12-inch display has a resolution of 2160 x 1440, while different models of the tablet come with different internal specifications. There are options to have Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 processors. System memory can come in 4GB or 8GB sizes. While internal storage options go from 64GB to 512GB.

The surface has two cameras, front and back, offering 5-megapixel sensors. Battery life is claimed to last up to nine hours before needing a recharge. In our view Microsoft missed a trick by trying to make its tablets top end and high margin, but time will tell if we are proven right about this.
