Microsoft Surface, Could This be It?
|This tablet might be an iPad replacement for me :p|
Okay, design aside... but is this newcomer worth our while? Let's find out after the break :D
|Built-in Kickstand and Thin Keyboard. How does that sound?|
According to the specs sheet, the RT version will be powered by ARM Processor, HD Panel, a USB 2.0 port, Micro SD port, and Microsoft Office 2013 Home & Student RT Edition. As for the Pro version, it'll be powered by Intel's Core i5 Ivy Bridge, Full-HD Panel, USB 3.0 port, and Micro SDXC. Oh, please note that the Pro version won't have the Microsoft Office. Don't pout and say all the curses yet, though. Microsoft has included a pen stylus with the Digital Ink I've mentioned earlier in this flavor.
|Thin... and Beautiful|
Unfortunately, we won't see this in stores soon, since Microsoft planned to release the tablet around the launch of Windows 8 (Fall 2012, from September to December) for the RT version. As for the Pro version? I'm afraid we'll have to wait a little longer. Microsoft said that they would be available three months after the Windows 8 launch. Let's see when they can get into Indonesia, huh? ;)
What do you think? If you had an iPad or Android Tablet, would you trade it with this? I think I am... if the pricing is as sensible as iPad :p
