Microsoft Surface Tablet

Microsoft Surface comes in two variants, the top model runs the Windows 8 on an Intel Core i5 processor and runs all your existing Windows application. This means that in Microsoft Surface Pro tablet, you have a tablet that can stand in for your PC, a ‘serious’ tablet.

The low cost Surface model runs Windows RT on an ARM machine and will not run full desktop applications like the Surface Pro tablet, but will only run Metro optimised apps. This variant of the Surface competes with maintream tablets like the Apple iPad and the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Both Microsoft Surface models feature Microsoft Office and Student 2013 pre-installed.

The two Surface tablets may look a bit similar from afar, but they are not entirely the same in feature, size and weight. Although both feature a 10.6-inch display, the Microsoft Surface Pro tablet boasts of a full HD display (1080p), while the Surface for Windows RT is expected to come with a 720p display.

The Surface RT tablet is slimmer and lighter than the Pro variant. However, both feature built-in keyboards (may be available as a separate accessory) and kickstand that do not stand on the way when you want to use the device in tablet mode. Microsoft Surface RT is currently available in Nigeria, but the Microsoft Surface Pro, which runs full Windows 8 OS seem not to be available.

Microsoft Surface RT Tablet is currently available in Nigeria at Konga Store at a price of N90,000 for the 32GB model without the touch cover (keyboard). With the keyboard, the price of 32GB Microsoft Surface RT is N119,800. The Microsoft Surface Pro have not been spotted yet.
