January 22nd, 2013 by Tech Staff
What is the Microsoft Surface? Haven’t you heard? Microsoft has launched its first tablet – Surface is what they call it and just like other tablets on the market it comes in a few flavors - Surface Windows RT and Surface Windows 8 Pro.
The big differences between these two tablets is the storage space, the size and screen quality, the powerful CPU, and full Microsoft Office applications installed on the Surface Windows 8 Pro. Also, the added benefit of adding non-Microsoft products is a plus. Tell a diva - which would you buy?
