surface 3If you’re thinking about getting your hands on the new Microsoft Surface 3 but want to take it for a spin first, you won’t have to wait until the tablet’s availability to test it out. Microsoft has recently confirmed that customers who are interested in checking it out can go ahead and pop on over to one of the Microsoft Stores and try it out for themselves first before making a decision.

Prior to this it was reported that testing was only available via appointment only, but a Microsoft spokesperson got in touch with the folks at Windows Central confirming that no appointment was needed, and that “We invite everyone to head to their local store to get their hands on Surface 3 and check it out for themselves.”

The tablet is only expected to begin shipping to customers come 5th of May which means that there is still some time for you to decide, so if the latest Surface tablet has caught your attention then perhaps you can try it out. The Surface 3 is the latest Surface tablet from Microsoft. Unlike the Surface Pro 3, this version is slightly smaller thanks to its 10.8-inch display. It is also thinner at 8.7mm.

However unlike previous Surface models without the “Pro” branding, the Surface 3 will run the full 64-bit Windows 8.1 OS as opposed to Windows RT, which some are claiming effectively spells the end of the RT platform. It will be powered by a quad-core Intel Atom x7 processor with a microSD card slot, a Mini DisplayPort, USB 3.0 ports, an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 3.5MP front camera, all of which can be your starting from $499 and can be pre-ordered online.
