Hands on: Microsoft Surface Review

Microsoft’s Surface tablet PC made a big splash on the market. its highly publicized launch of a new tablet computer, I was really excited about it. Surface comes with two different model with different OS : Windows RT and Windows 8


Powered by an Nvidia ARM CPU, Surface has a few ports peppered around its sides, notably a USB 2.0 socket and a microSD card slot. The resolution of the 10.6-inch screen is unknown. Seeing as it's marketed as a ClearType HD display, while the beefier Pro model (out 90 days later and likely to be considerably more expensive), is pegged as Full HD, I'd wager this is a 1,280x720-pixel panel. What we can confirm is that it'll have a 16:9 aspect ratio, making it ideal for watching movies.


Standard Windows 8 replaces the fragmented versions of Windows 7 Home and Home Premium and will probably be the operating system of choice for the vast majority of you. Windows 8 Pro, as the name suggests, is for the professional user, and adds better encryption, PC management and domain control -- that's all the stuff your IT department will be concerned about.

Windows RT is the version you'll find pre-installed on tablets and devices based on ARM chips. These chips are smaller and use a lot less power, so you wouldn't want the same processor-heavy software from your PC running on your less capable tablet or phone. (Courtesy : CNET)

"The Surface" is ideal Windows 8 experience, as Google has their Nexus line of phones (and soon tablets) and if you've seen Apple's Smart-cover on the new iPad 3, then this method of connection won't be a surprise – it's another move that shows Microsoft is intending to go toe-to-toe with the Cupertino brand in the tablet arena.

Outer Look

Surface was designed to be your go-to-device. It comes with a precision crafted VaporMg casing that protects the vital technology inside and leaves a high quality finish and feel. The Windows RT-powered Surface will have an HD display which could indicate a 1366 x 768 resolution, however the Windows 8 Pro Surface will have a Full HD display


While both tablets have Wi-Fi, there’s no mention of Bluetooth in either of the Surface versions. You also don’t get the option of a 3G SIM slot with Microsoft’s offering.


The ARM version of Microsoft Surface has storage options at 64GB. The Surface with Win 8 Pro however will max out at 128GB, Approx 10GB will be used just for the OS itself.
