NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- From smartphones and computers to smartwatches, fitness bands and high-resolution digital music players, there are many great choices when it comes to gifts for Father's Day.
Here are some of our choices for well-priced, high-quality gifts for 2015.
Microsoft Surface 3
Compared to its big brother, the Surface 3 has a 10.8-inch,, full-HD screen (4:30 ratio) compared to the Pro's 12-inch touchscreen, an Intel (INTC) Atom processor (Pros have faster i3, i5 and i7 processors) and, most importantly, prices starting at only $499 compared to the Pro's $799. Colorful snap-on keyboard/covers are optional for both devices.
Aside from the Pro offering a more flexible kickstand on the back and more storage options these two portables are quite similar. If you don't need the extra kick of horsepower the Surface 3 is a very good buy.
Don't forget, both run the latest version of Windows 8.1 and will be eligible for a free upgrade to the much more user friendly Windows 10 beginning in late July.
