    Hello. I live in Ukraine (where the 400$ is average salary btw) and I wanna buy some Surface to study at university. I found the new, unused Surface 3 - 2/64 (LTE) for 320$. Is it a good deal for now, or I should pay a little more and purchase some another Surface? How do you think?

    Boot Surface 3 from external SSD?

    I've replaced my Surface 3 with a Surface Pro 2017 because the S3 was just. too slow. I attributed much of the slowness and lack of responsiveness to the eMMC drive, kind of like using a USB thumb drive for a hard drive. Would it speed up the Surface 3 noticeably to have it boot off of, and...

    Surface 3 Pen Bent Severely

    I just got a Surface 3 pen for school about a week ago. Everything was fine, until I noticed a big dent near the top of it.
