But hearing all of that, and then sliding the 3 out of the box, this prior conversation was awash in my brain.</p> <p>Inside was a Surface 3 with 128GB of storage and 4GB of RAM ($599, <a href="http://www.neowin.net/news/say-hello-to-the-surface-3-a-low-cost-addition-to-the-surface-family">full specs</a>), a blue keyboard cover ($129), a dock ($199), and a pen ($49).</p> <p><img alt="neowin surface neowin review surface 3" src="http://www.techspot.com/images2/news/bigimage/2015/04/2015-04-21-image-1.jpg" /></p> <p>I thought, &quot;Hey, this feels like a Surface Pro 3, but smaller&quot; and my brain was right, because that was the point Microsoft set out to establish with the 3. <span style="line-height: 1.4;">Turning on the tablet fired up the setup process for Windows 8.1, and I forgot how long this process takes as I have gotten used to Windows 10&#39;s faster first-run experience.

    Why can't I comment on Facebook with my surface 3?
    Saw something about optimizing internet explorer but searching that I found that is just deleting browsing history. Considering I JUST bought this I don't believe that's the solution to the problem!
