Microsoft recently released the Microsoft Surface tablet which is the company’s debut into the tablet PC market. Microsoft Surface was released in step with the Windows 8 operating system and offers an impressive 16:9 display that stays crystal clear regardless of the viewing angle. When you add the convenient kickstand, the Microsoft Surface makes for a handy media watching device.
Microsoft Surface is solidly built with magnesium casing which is scratch resistant and appropriately protects the 10.6-inch display. The display is high definition on the RT model and full high definition 1080p on the Pro model which accepts Windows 8.
Microsoft Surface Features
When you take a good look at Microsoft Surface you will find an interesting array of ports which are typically only found on an x86 or ARM-based tablet. The Microsoft Surface tablet is equipped with a USB 2.0 port, HDMI output, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a microSD card slot. Depending upon whether you choose the RT or the Pro model, Microsoft Surface has 32GB or 64GB of storage built into the unit.
The screen with touch functionality is very responsive to tapping and swiping and the unit is powered by a Core i5 provided you choose the Pro model. The keyboard completes functionality though it requires some adjustment since it is very thin and flat. Also, the Type Cover takes time to get used to since you are unable to tell what key you are hitting unless you are looking directly at the keyboard. The Type Cover is optional and prices in at around $130.
Microsoft Surface also offers a 720p front and rear camera, 2GB Random Access Memory (RAM, and a NVIDIA T30 processor. The battery life is approximate 24 watt hours and the unit weighs 1.5 pounds and measures in at 10.81 x 6.77 x 0.37 inches.
Prices for the Microsoft Surface can range from $499 to a bundle with Type Cover for $699 depending upon the model you choose. Fans of Microsoft devices have been eagerly checking the Black Friday deals on Amazon in hopes Am azon will offer a special deal on Microsoft Surface for the holidays.
