Ever since last year, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 has been on sale and this triggered a lot of speculations regarding a new upgrade. Rumors suggest that the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is about to hit the market and will be unveiled soon enough. However, sadly till now, there have been no concrete rumors or information regarding this upcoming device.
Earlier reports in April suggested that the Redmondian Company will unveil the Microsoft Surface Pro 4, during Microsoft’s build developer conference scheduled from April 29 to 1st May at San Francisco, California. Sadly, there was nothing about the Surface Pro 4 during the event held by Microsoft.
Right now, the latest speculations suggest that the upcoming flagship tablet/PC combo by Microsoft will be launched alongside the release of Windows 10. Windows 10 is Microsoft’s latest Mobile and desktop operating system, reported to be launched in July.
With the emergence of the Surface 3, Microsoft has also launched the Free Type Cover keyboard with the Surface Pro 3, which is worth $168 in the UK market, as a limited time offer only.
For this, the consumer will need to buy any entry level model of the Surface Pro 3, excluding the entry-level Core i3 64GB variant worth 976.38 dollars. Considering the major price-cut and the awesome add-on feature, this is the best time to grab a Microsoft Surface Pro 3.
Presently, the qualifying model is priced around $1300. It features a Core i5 128GB version with 4GB of RAM. Meanwhile, the high end Surface Pro 3 variant is priced around $2400 and is much more powerful, equipped with an Intel Core i7 processor with 512GB storage and 8GB of RAM.
The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 enjoys a notorious reputation of being the most prohibitively expensive laptop/tablet in the market due to its hefty price tag. However, it is likely to be overtaken soon, when Microsoft launches the Surface Pro 4. When the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 came out last year, it was an instant hit.
Some of the most of ardent Apple fans were intrigued with the latest tablet/laptop combo from Microsoft stables. It garnered a lot of interest and sold pretty well. Sadly, the price was too high and even after experiencing a price cut; a lot of people couldn’t afford it.
On the other hand, Microsoft canceled the Surface RT as it wouldn’t allow users to install anything but apps from the official Windows App Store. Thankfully, the Microsoft Surface 3 comes as a great alternative and packed with enough features to make it an awesome lower-price alternative to the Surface Pro 3.
