Microsoft (MSFT) Surface 3 Review -- A Less Expensive, Real Windows Tablet - TheStreet. The new Surface 3 is smaller and lighter than the Surface Pro 3. For $500, you can get it in a 4GB of RAM, and 128 GB of storage configuration, which is the same as my Sony Tap 11. The Tap 11 is an orphan; but, it works great, and I bought one as a backup. It is thinner and lighter than the Surface 3, and comes with a stylus and keyboard cover. The Surface 3 will add $200 to the cost to get a stylus and keyboard. When the Tap 11 was new, its retail price was $799, which is comparable to a fully equipped Surface 3. But, I got mine for $500, and you can still buy them on the Internet for less. My Tap 11, I think I'll keep her.
