Unboxing the Surface 3: The thinnest and lightest tablet ever created by Microsoft (video)

Microsoft Surface 3 has recently been released and it’s a beautiful device. Not to be confused with the Surface Pro 3, the Surface 3 is the latest version from the Surface family set to replace the Surface 2 and Surface RT.

The big difference between its predecessors is that customers will still get a lower cost device, but running a full version of Windows 8.1, which eventually will upgrade free to Windows 10 when Microsoft launches later this summer.

This is the new thinnest and lightest tablet the software giant has built and it starts at $499 for the 64GB and 2GB of RAM, while the 128GB with 4GB of RAM costs $599.

It features a 10.8-inch display with a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080. Now, without further ado, a brand new Surface 3 has arrived at my door steps and today I prepared an unboxing video of the device, the Type Cover, and Surface Pen. You can now hit play!
