4 Reasons Against

Not 3G Compatible

Most tablet computers of this type and age are not 3G compatible. The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is no exception to this as it too is not 3G compatible.

Tablets which are 3G compatible that might be worth considering include the SM-T815N Galaxy Tab S2[pl_3239338_price], or the SM-T815 Galaxy Tab S2[pl_3247710_price] both from Samsung; or the Samsung GT-N8000 Galaxy Note[plb_2668414_price].

Not 4G Compatible

Like most of the other tablet computers of this type and age, the Surface Pro 3 is not 4G compatible.

Tablet computers which are 4G compatible that might be worth looking at include the SM-T815N Galaxy Tab S2[pl_3239338_price], or the SM-T815 Galaxy Tab S2[pl_3247710_price] both from Samsung which is also cheaper.

Only Two Processor Cores

Most tablet computers of a similar age and spec to the Surface Pro 3 have between two and seven processor cores, including the Surface Pro 3 which has two processor cores.

If you want more processor cores then you might want to consider the SM-T815N Galaxy Tab S2[pl_3239338_price] (4 processor cores), or the SM-T815 Galaxy Tab S2[pl_3247710_price] (4 processor cores) both from Samsung which is also cheaper.

3 Other reasons to consider the Microsoft Surface Pro 3

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when Microsoft released the Surface Pro 3.

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 1.5 gigahertz, the Surface Pro 3 has a pretty standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other tablet computers that came out around the same time as the Surface Pro 3.

If you would prefer a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to consider the SM-T815N Galaxy Tab S2[pl_3239338_price] (1.9GHz and cheaper), or the SM-T815 Galaxy Tab S2[pl_3247710_price] (1.9GHz and cheaper) both from Samsung.

Average Rear Camera Resolution

At 5 megapixels, the Surface Pro 3 has a relatively standard rear camera resolution compared to most of the other tablet computers of a comparable type and age to the Surface Pro 3.

If this tablet computer rear camera resolution is too low for you then you might also want to look at the SM-T815N Galaxy Tab S2[pl_3239338_price] (8MP and cheaper), or the SM-T815 Galaxy Tab S2[pl_3247710_price] (8MP and cheaper) both from Samsung.
