Description

The Microsoft Surface is the first Microsoft-designed tablet computer. The Intel-powered version is thicker and heavier than the ARM one, but comes with the much more powerful Windows 8 Pro, providing the full functionality of a PC. It has a large 10.6", high-resolution touchscreen and powerful hardware characteristics that allow it to compete with both tablets and high-end laptops alike.
