You can wait until that new tablet you've been eyeing goes on sale, but if you need something quick for work, school, or your favorite hobby, why wait? You can still get plenty of power if you consider the refurbished market. You might even save a ton of money, too!

For example, this Microsoft Surface 3 Atom fits all the requirements you're looking for in such a device, including size, portability, storage, and resolution. And during our Refurbished Event, which runs from September 17 to 30, you can get this lightweight Microsoft tablet for just $239.99 —  no coupon necessary!

The Surface 3 Atom weighs only three pounds, making it light enough to tote to work or class every day. Its 10.8-inch ClearType display features a 1,920 x 1,200 resolution and 3:2 aspect ratio for clear, quality images.

The Intel Atom x7-Z8700 processor is another reason you might love this tablet. It provides a fast and powerful performance so you can browse the internet, stream movies, listen to music, download games and other fun apps, and more. Select, zoom, and move things around on its 10-point multi-touch screen in either portrait or landscape mode. Its 3-point kickstand allows you to work comfortably at your desk, on the couch/bed, or while giving a hands-free presentation.

Other notable features include its 4GB of memory, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. It also has Dolby speakers, so you can enjoy media with crisp sound quality. Not to mention, its battery lasts for 10 hours on a full charge–now you can finally watch movies like The Batman or Dune and not have to worry about your device dying on you.

The Microsoft Surface 3 Atom currently costs $239.99, and no coupon is required thanks to our Refurbished Event, which ends on September 30. That's not a bad deal considering other tablets can cost up to $1,000!
