When looking for an alternative tablet to use other than the ones from Apple, going with the surface tablet GL4-00009, or more recognized as the Surface 3 from Microsoft, serves as a recommended option. The Surface 3 is considered as the smallest and most compact among the Surface family of tablets, measuring 10.8 inches by 7.4 inches by .3 inches in order to reflect its full portability. But within that framework comes the ability that matches what a notebook can do adequately. Powering the surface GL4-00009 is an Intel Atom x7 Z8700 processor, which can go up to 1.6GHz and can reach up to 2.4GHz when in Turbo. The quad-core processor is complemented by a 4GB LPDDR3 SDRAM as well as an Intel HD Graphics chipset.
Output is reflected onto a 10.8-inch display, with a 1920 x 1280 resolution and a 3:2 aspect ratio. The 10-point multi-touch screen makes it perfect for use with a stylus. Storage for this tablet is a 128GB SSD, which is plentiful enough for those files and other documents. And unlike Apple tablets, the Surface 3 totes a USB 3.0 port to connect. It already has Windows 10 pre-installed, and will be able to handle Office with ease.
Every aspect of Surface 3 has been meticulously crafted - from the strong, light frame with a 3-position Kickstand to the 10.8" high-resolution screen. Surface is elegant and durable enough to take everywhere.
Take notes, write directly on screen, and even record a lecture at the same time. With up to 10 hours of battery life for video playback, Surface 3 lasts through your movie marathon (or all your classes). Whether it's watching movies, managing your budget, or helping your child learn and play, Surface 3 has it covered. Feel more confident when your children are online with enhanced family safety settings. Surface 3 is the perfect travel companion.
