Microsoft Surface Pro 3 gets a UK release date and price

Microsoft has confirmed that the Surface Pro 3, its new flagship tablet, will be available in the UK from the 28th August – that’s just three weeks from today.

The tablet is Microsoft’s attempt at a fightback – the first two tablets having not performed very well, despite the huge marketing campaign. As we learned when Microsoft announced the device, it is being positioned not just as a tablet, but as a laptop replacement too. The company has previously even offered to trade-in people’s Macbook Air’s in exchange for a discount on a Surface Pro 3.

Price-wise things are pretty much in line with what we were expecting. According to KnowYourMobile, the various configurations and prices will be:

  • 64GB/Intel i3/4GB RAM – £639
  • 128GB/Intel i5/4GB RAM – £849
  • 256GB/Intel i5/8GB RAM – £1,109
  • 256GB/Intel i7/8GB RAM – £1,339
  • 512GB/Intel i7/8GB RAM – £1,649
