The Surface 3 is the smallest and most compact member of the Surface family that Microsoft launched in 2015. It is a more flexible tablet-laptop hybrid that can run modern and desktop apps. Now, Microsoft has announced a new offer for the Surface 3 Education bundle that applies more specifically to students.

This is a new Microsoft offer for the U.K. and other countries. The offer gives the Surface 3 Education bundle a 30% discount. Microsoft is offering the discount from now to March 31st.

That’s a pretty substantial discount for the tablet, and Microsoft has sweetened the offer with the inclusion of a Surface Pen. That’s a great stylus pen ideal for sketching and notes. If you order the Surface 3 Education bundle before February 1, it will include the redesigned Surface Pro 4 stylus pen.

Note that the specific price of the Surface 3 bundle will vary depending on the reseller. Microsoft has provided a list of all the resellers now offering the new discount. The following U.K. device resellers can provide further details for you:

  • Academia
  • CCS Media
  • Computacenter
  • Insight
  • Kelway
  • Misco
  • PCS
  • PC World
  • SCC
  • Softcat
  • SoftwareOne
  • Storm
  • Total Computers
  • XMA

Of course, the authorized reseller list for the USA is not the same. That includes Microsoft partners such as AT&T, PCM, Staples, CDW, Verizon, PDS, UDT, TIG, Shi, Insight and more besides.

The Surface 3 is not the most updated tablet in the Surface line up. However, it still remains a flexible tablet with reasonable specifications. It comes with Windows 10, has an Intel Atom processor, up to 128 GB internal storage with 4 GB RAM and a full HD display with 1,920 x 1,080 resolution. It also has a 3.5-megapixel front camera and 8-megapixel rear camera.

The Office 365 Personal is also bundled with the tablet with a one-year subscription. That includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Outlook and OneNote.

So this is a pretty good offer from Microsoft. Check out the Surface 3 pages on the Microsoft website for further details.
