3 Reasons Against
Not 3G Compatible
The Surface Pro 3 is not 3G compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other tablet computers that were launched in the last 12 months are also not 3G compatible.
If you would prefer a tablet computer that is 3G compatible then you might also want to look at the Samsung GT-P5100 Galaxy Tab 2 which also has a higher rating.
Not 4G Compatible
Most recently released similar spec tablets are not 4G compatible. The Surface Pro 3 is no exception to this as it too is not 4G compatible.
At 800 grams, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other tablet computers that were launched in the last year. The weights of tablet computers that have been available for around the same time as the Surface Pro 3 range from 240g to 2.7kg, and the average weight is 700g.
2 Other reasons to consider the Microsoft Surface Pro 3
Average Screen Size
With a screen size of 12 inches, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 has a fairly standard screen size compared to most of the other tablet computers that have been available for around the same time as the Surface Pro 3.
Tablet computers with a larger screen size that might be worth considering include the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 ($1,979.00) (12.3" and higher rated).
Average Rear Camera Resolution
At 5 megapixels, the Surface Pro 3 has a relatively average rear camera resolution compared to most of the other tablet computers that were launched around the same time as the Surface Pro 3.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 5MP rear camera resolution tablet computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the Samsung SM-W703 Galaxy Tab Pro S ($66.53).
If this tablet computer rear camera resolution is too low for you then you might also want to look at the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 ($1,979.00) (8MP and higher rated).
