A bigger screen and plenty of power for prosumers to crush their graphically intensive tasks, this configuration of the Surface Pro 3 rocks a 15-inch display with 3240 x 2160 resolution, 10th Gen Intel Core i7, GeForce GTX 1660Ti GPU, 16GB DDR4 RAM and a 256GB SSD.
As you can read in our Microsoft Surface Book 3 review, we’re big fans of this laptop/tablet hybrid for its generously long battery life, comfortable typing experience and pure power under the hood to get things done.
Both options start with a gorgeously vivid display with an impressive 400 nits of brightness and a 101% sRGB color gamut. The baseline has a more portable 13.5-inch panel with 3000 x 2000-pixel resolution, whereas the beefy boy comes with an immersive 15-inch 3240 x 2160-pixel screen.
Under the hood of the base model, you’ll find a 10th Gen Intel Core i5-1035G7 CPU with integrated Iris Plus graphics, 8GB DDR4 RAM and a 256GB SSD. The jump in price to the specced-out version trades these out for an Intel Core i7-1065G7 CPU, dedicated Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q graphics, 16GB DDR4 RAM and the same 256GB storage.
Plus, if you’re shopping for laptop accessories, Microsoft has you covered with two USB-C and two USB-A ports. Whichever way you cut it, these are two deals with real value for money.
