TigerDirect has a wild deal on a refurbished Microsoft Surface 3 tablet – a mere $199 with $6.99 shipping. The tablet came out in 2017 and was one of the definitive devices in the Surface line. I loved mine when I had it but I sold it a few years ago to fund some other silly purchases.

The tablet has an Intel Atom x7-z8700 1.60GHz chip with 4GB DDR4 RAM, 64GB SSD (with a microSD slot), 10.8″ Touchscreen, USB 3.0, WiFi, Win 10 Home. It’s a great little device for web browsing, document editing, and some VERY light gaming. Don’t expect to play Far Cry on this thing and you’ll be fine.

I’d move fast. I haven’t seen these things at this price ever.
