Microsoft unveils Surface Tablet

Post by Admin on Tue Jun 19, 2012 1:04 pm

Microsoft unveiled its first ever tablet, the Microsoft Surface Tablet.

The Microsoft Surface tablet comes in two options, Windows RT and Windows 8 Pro.

Windows RT is the lightweight option, both physically and spec-wise.

9.33 mm thick
10.6" ClearType HD DIsplay
31.5 Wh battery
microSD, USB 2.0, Micro HD Video
Office Home & Student 2013 RT, Touch Cover, Type Cover
32 GB, 64 GB

Windows 8 Pro, is the obvious pro option, and is touted as a "full PC." It comes with a heftier weight (and, we can assume, a heftier pricetag too):

903 g
13.5 mm thick
10.6" ClearType Full HD Display
42 Wh battery
microSDXC, USB 3.0, Mini DisplayPort Video,
Touch Cover, Type Cover, Pen with Palm Block
64 GB, 128 GB


Because Surface is a full-on PC, it will run true PC games. Eric Neustadter, from Xbox Live Operations, tweeted informally that it could run Civ IV and V, unlike the iPad, and that it will be "the greatest Civilization-playing device known to mankind."

Microsoft has stated the tablet-PC hybrids will be priced competitively, but there were no firm details on price or release date.

What do these have for processors, and it will run games true, but well I doubt it.
