New Microsoft ad shows how the Surface 3 tablet can help students "be noteworthy"
The Surface 3 is a 10.8-inch Full HD slate that lets you record lectures and take notes at the same time, convert handwriting to text, and even write music on the go. Other useful features include 1 year of Office 365 Personal, Surface Pen (sold separately), full size USB 3.0 port, microSD card support, an 8MP rear camera, and a 3.5 MP front-facing camera.
Microsoft is currently selling the Surface 3 for $499 (64 GB of storage space, 2 GB of RAM, Wi-Fi), or $599 (128 GB of storage space, 4 GB of RAM, Wi-Fi). LTE variants of the tablet should be released later this year. The Surface 3 runs Windows 8.1, and will be updated to Windows 10 starting July 29.
What do you think, is the Surface 3 a good tablet for students, or are there better options out there?
