    Bought a Surface used and need to know how to tell if its a Surface 3 or Pro. Also, need to get a screen protector and sizes available for 3s are 10.8 or 12. The diagonal measurement is 11 1/2 usable portion of screen & 13 1/2 total. Whats the correct way to measure screen size?

    Oriented with Windows Button on the right side:
    A Surface Pro 3. is 11.5 inches wide, Screen diagonal measure is 12 inches
    A Surface 3 non is 10.5 inches wide, Screen diagonal measure is 10.8 inches
    Any other values are inaccurate.

    The CPU or Processor in a Surface 3 non is:
    Intel Atom x7-Z8700 CPU @ 1.60GHz, 1601 Mhz.
    This is the only option for Surface 3 non and is NOT an option for a Pro 3.
    If you have something other than the above CPU such as (i3, i5, i7) it is NOT a Surface 3 non Pro.
