Surface Pro 3 by the numbers: a deep dive into configuration details

Brad Chacos | May 21, 2014
Here are all the Surface Pro 3 hardware specs you need to know, including configuration and price options.

Silver's the only color option, alas.

  • Dimensions: 7.93 in. x 11.5 in. x 0.36 in.
  • Weight: 1.76 lbs
  • Casing: Magnesium
  • Wireless: Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0 low energy technology
  • Full-size USB 3.0
  • microSD card reader
  • Headset jack
  • Mini DisplayPort
  • Cover and charging ports

The tablet also packs a bevy of sensors: An ambient light sensor, an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and a magnetometer.

It wouldn't be a Surface tablet without a wide range of available accessories. Notably, the lack of Touch Cover options for the Surface Pro 3 drives home that this device is meant to be a versatile laptop replacement, not a tablet in the traditional sense. It's too bad that there's not a Power Cover keyboard accessory available for the Surface Pro 3 (not that you can ever find those in stock anyway).

  • Surface Pro Type Cover--$129.99
  • Additional Surface Pen--$49.99
  • Additional 36W Power Supply--$79.99
  • Additional Pen Loop--$4.99
  • Docking Station for Surface Pro 3--$199.99
  • Surface Ethernet Adapter--$39.99

Again, PCWorld's Surface Pro 3 reveal has more details on the digitizer pen, newly hinged SP3 Type Cover, and the SP3 docking station.
