Microsoft has announced the latest iteration in its Surface tablet lineup, with the Surface 3. Aiming to fully replace your laptop, with all the functionality and efficiency that one needs in a tablet format, Microsoft at the same time wanted to make the Surface accessible to more people, while still featuring the best that the Surface Pro models have to offer. The result is the Surface 3, which is lighter and thinner, able to run full Windows, and comes with a one-year Office 365 membership. It also comes in a mobile broadband version able to connect to 4G LTE. Starting at $499 USD, pre-orders begin today and the product will drop in Microsoft stores and Surface retailers beginning May 5. But for now, you can try the new Surface at any Microsoft Store.
