Surface 3 review: Finally, a cheap Surface you'd actually want

Microsoft's Surface 3 is the purest distillation of its hybrid tablet/laptop concept yet. It packs in a healthy amount of functionality for its $499 price, though be ready to pay another $130 for its keyboard.

Pros
  • The lightest Surface yet
  • Extremely versatile as both a tablet and laptop
  • Runs all Windows software
  • Stylus support is a nice bonus
Cons
  • Keyboard is another $130
  • Entry model has only 2GB RAM
  • Not powerful enough for anything beyond basic computing
