Microsoft started selling the Surface 3 earlier this week, and it has already been promoting the new 10.8-inch tablet with a series of TV ads. The latest commercial for the Surface 3 is going after the college crowd with examples of how it can help with their work and how it can distract them with entertainment.

In this case, the unseen student is working on his degree in video game design, and uses the Surface 3, along with the Surface Pen and OneNote, to create sketches about game characters on screen. After that, it's time for some fun with a round of Halo: Spartan Strike on the big touchscreen.

Make sure you check out our recent Surface 3 unboxing and first impressions, along with our just launched forums for the tablet.
