However, unlike the Surface 2, the new Surface 3 is more powerful and ditches Windows RT in favor of Windows 8.1 (upgradable to Windows 10), which means that you can run all kinds of applications, modern and traditional apps.

Keep in mind that unlike the Surface Pro 3 that comes with the Surface Pen, you’ll need to buy this accessory separately, priced at $49.99. You’ll also need the Type Cover, if you want to get more out of the device, and it will cost you an extra $129.99. All content on this site is provided with no warranties, express or implied.
