Microsoft's latest entry into the tablet market replaces the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 lines that were released less than a year ago.

The Surface Pro 3 features a 12.0-inch display with a 2160×1440 resolution, an aspect ratio close to 3:2, and has 4K display support.

The Surface Pro 3 starts at $799 and will be available for order tomorrow.

  • Core i3, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage - $799
  • Core i5, 4GB RAM, 128GB storage - $999
  • Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256GB storage - $1,299
  • Core i7, 8GB RAM, 256GB storage - $1,549
  • Core i7, 8GB RAM, 512GB storage - $1,949

Those are prices for the tablet only. If you want the keyboard you will have to fork out an extra $130, which takes the price of the cheapest tablet plus keyboard combo to $929. A replacement pen — should you need one — would add another $49 to the total.

This means the top-end tablet, including the pen and keyboard, comes in at a staggering $2,079.

The tablet runs Windows 8.1 Pro and is equipped with a 5-megapixel and 1080p HD front- and rear-facing cameras. It weighs in at 1.76 pounds, which is lighter than the Surface Pro 2, which weighs 2 pounds.

Microsoft puts the battery life of the Surface Pro 3 at 9 hours.
