Surface 3 discounted to just $320 at Woot
It may be getting a little long in the tooth, but Microsoft's Surface 3 tablet is still a potentially solid buy if you can find a retailer offering it at a good price. Currently filling that role is Woot, which offering the 10.8-inch tablet for just $320 (opens in new tab), which is just over 50 percent off of its original list price of $649.
The Surface 3 first made its debut all the way back in 2015 as a sort of lower-end alternative to the leading Surface at the time, the Surface Pro 3. It's powered by a quad-core Intel Atom x7-z8700 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. The model on offer at Woot also packs 4G LTE for use on the go.
Compared to newer hardware, the Surface 3 isn't going to set the world on fire. But, if you need a relatively cheap tablet with the build quality that Surface brings to the table, then it's not a bad deal.

For such a large organization, it's baffling how silent they are on items that the consumer invests in.
A few years ago I was all in, but the shift in communication has me tentative on purchasing new offerings from Microsoft.
I got burned on Surface 2, Surface 3, and Lumia devices like so many others.
