There’s no denying that Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 2-in-1 is an impressive device. It continues to make the Windows devices of Microsoft’s partners look like drab knock-offs. It’s super thin, reasonably light for its screen size and possibly the most attractive thing Microsoft has ever designed. It looks like a tablet, but handles programs like a full-blown Windows PC. The Surface Pro 3 only has a single thing going against it where hardware is concerned.
As impressive as the Surface Pro 3 looks, it’s not very durable. Older Surface Pro devices made by Microsoft were solid black, with a cold metal paint job that sometimes flaked. For this device, Microsoft opted to ditch the paint and go with silver. The device looks amazing, but even one that’s a few months old can start to show some wear if you don’t have it in a case.
Take it from someone who owns a rough looking Surface Pro 3, you’re going to need a case or sleeve. Here are 8 great Surface Pro 3 cases and sleeves to protect your investment. Each is built specifically for Microsoft’s flagship Windows 2-in-1. Included with each is a run down of its features and how you can easily order it from your home for delivery.
