Microsoft Surface Pro 3 12” Tablet (Refurbished)
Taking the place of both a traditional laptop and a tablet, the Surface Pro 3 provides a generous 12” screen to work on and the advanced hardware to back it up. It comes equipped with the Windows 10 Pro OS, which runs Office and the Edge browser with aplomb, and it has a kickstand built into its frame, which allows you to prop it up to type emails or juggle apps easily.
The Surface Pro 3 improves upon its predecessor with a 3:2 aspect ratio that creates more screen real estate. With extra room to move around, you can tap, draw, and type with ease. What’s more, 2160x1440 resolution renders everything in sharper-than-full HD quality, making photos, text, and websites look true-to-life.
Solid-State Drive: Speed and Reliability
The built-in solid-state drive (SSD) performs the same duties of a traditional hard-disk drive, but up to 100 times faster. Unlike hard-disk drives, SSDs don’t rely on moving parts to write, store, and retrieve data; instead, they use flash memory chips that can boot up and launch apps in seconds. Without the moving parts, SSDs are also lighter, take up less space within your tablet, and are less susceptible to damage and data loss from bumps.
Speedy Data Transfers with USB 3.0
A USB 3.0 SuperSpeed port transfers files to and from your tablet at more than 10 times the speed of USB 2.0, which is especially helpful when you have a gigantic project on a flash drive, or you want to backup all of your files to an external hard drive. If your connected device uses USB 2.0, the port can still move bits and bytes with no sweat at 2.0 speeds, thanks to its backwards compatibility.
Seamless Digital Organization with Cortana
Designed to keep you organized and informed, Cortana is a nimble digital assistant that works on every Windows 10 device. The program helps you set time-, person-, or location-based reminders, then pushes them out to your compatible PC, tablet, and smartphone simultaneously when needed. On compatible devices, Cortana also recognizes voice commands and lets you dictate emails with ease.
