The Surface 3 features a 10.8" ClearType Full HD Plus widescreen display with a 1920 x 1280 native resolution, which allows you to play Full HD content with ease. The display is also a touchscreen so you'll be able to take full advantage of the multi-touch gestures incorporated into Windows 8.1. If you want to output video to an external display, you can use the mini DisplayPort.

The system is powered by a quad-core 1.6 GHz Intel Atom x7-Z8700 processor. It also has 4GB of RAM, 128GB of flash storage, a microSD media card slot, 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 3.5-megapixel front camera, and an integrated microphone.

Microsoft Surface 3

Quad-Core Intel Atom x7 Performance
The Microsoft Surface 3 houses an Intel Atom x7-Z8700 processor. Its dual cores can reach a stock speed of 1.6 GHz. The processor also has a burst frequency of 2.4 GHz. With a dedicated 2MB L2 cache and 4GB of RAM, you'll be able to multitask quickly and efficiently.
10.8" ClearType Full HD Plus Touchscreen
Featuring a 1920 x 1280 native resolution, the 10.8" ClearType Full HD Plus display provides a high-res, clear viewing experience. Use the multi-position Kickstand for a hands-free way to watch movies. The display is also a touchscreen so you'll be able to utilize the multi-touch gestures incorporated into Windows 8.1. You can also output video to an external display via the mini DisplayPort.
Intel Dual-Band 802.11ac Wi-Fi
Featuring Intel dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi, the Surface 3 delivers faster Internet access, broader coverage, and longer battery life. The Surface 3 is also backwards compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi networks. The Surface 3 also comes with Bluetooth 4.0 technology so you'll be able to connect wirelessly to Bluetooth-compatible peripherals and accessories.
The Portability of a Tablet
Weighing in at 1.76 pounds and measuring 0.34" thin, the Surface 3 can be used in classes, at meetings, or on the road. The bright, responsive touchscreen and the high quality speakers with Dolby audio provides an immersive viewing experience. The 8-megapixel rear camera has autofocus and takes high resolution photos while the 3.5-megapixel front camera allows you to video chat with friends and family in high resolution.
3-Position Kickstand
The Microsoft Surface 3 has a kickstand with three preset options. There's a narrow angle for working at a traditional desk, an intermediate angle that is designed for sitting on the couch or using the device on your lap, and a wide angle that provides a natural writing or drawing canvas.
Surface 3 Type Cover
You can add a Surface 3 Type Cover to your Surface 3 to turn it into a highly versatile laptop. Thin and comfortable to use, Surface 3 Type Cover has the speed and ability of a classic laptop keyboard. Its keys are backlit so you can use it in low-lit environments. The Surface 3 Type Cover features a QWERTY keyboard, a full row of Function keys (F1-F12), Windows shortcut keys, and media controls. Take control of the cursor with your fingertip using the built-in touchpad. When folded back, Surface 3 Type Cover keys disable to prevent unwanted typing while you're using your Surface 3. Flip Surface 3 Type Cover closed to turn the display off and shield the screen from bumps and scratches. Surface 3 Type Cover is available in 5 colors, so you can show off how chic you truly are. Choose from black, bright blue, red, dark blue, and bright red.
Surface 3 Type Cover is not included.
Surface Pen
The Surface Pen feels like an actual pen and provides a natural writing experience. Use the Surface Pen to mark up presentations, sign documents, or enjoy art apps. You can also open a blank OneNote document with a click of the Surface Pen to instantly capture your next idea, even if your Surface Pro 3 is in sleep mode.
Surface Pen is not included.

Windows 10

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With it, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
