  • Summary: The basics The Microsoft Surface is Redmond’s long-awaited answer to the iPad. It’s a 10.6-inch slate with what the software giant hopes is the best of both worlds: the open compatibility of a PC via with USB 2.0 and micro SDXC memory card slots, and the always-on battery life and touchscreen skills...
  • Pros: The Microsoft Surface is sturdily built, and the kickstand is a welcome flourish for pro-users. Ignore the haters: Microsoft’s touch keyboard cover is a masterful piece of work. It’s wafer thin but you can pick up a quick pace on it with a bit of practice on it. If you’ve got a regular train comm...
  • Cons: The Microsoft Surface looks gorgeous in press images. Up close, it’s another matter: for one, it’s not nearly as thin as it looks. Much more of an issue is the aspect ratio: with an 10.6-inch screen (that’s not nearly as sharp as a new iPad or the Google Nexus 10’s display) it’s extremely wide, a...

Microsoft Surface RT review

IT PRO
15 May 2012
  • Summary: The Surface with Windows RT has undoubted limitation for a business – it won’t be replacing your laptop fleet just yet as there are niggles when it comes to using it on the move – but it’s well worth investing in one or two even now so you can see the potential for the version running Windows 8...

  • Conclusion: El resultado final : Si usted es uno de los primeros dispuestos a olvidar todo lo que sabes acerca de cómo navegar un ordenador, la tableta podría reemplazar su computadora portátil. Todos los demás: esperen a más aplicaciones.
  • Pros: Lo bueno : La interfaz Metro del Surface de Microsoft es innovadora, elegante, potente y versátil. La tableta se siente fuerte y bien construida, ejecuta Office 2013, e incluye vídeo y música. Sus accesorios de cubierta del teclado son la mejor maneras de escribir en una tablet.
  • Cons: Lo malo : el rendimiento de la tableta puede ser lento, su tienda en Windows es un pueblo fantasma, lleva tiempo acostumbrarse a Metro, y la interfaz de escritorio se siente torpe e inútil.

  • Pros: Design et fabrication impeccables, Modern UI
  • Cons: Les aberrations de Windows RT, Criblée de petits bugs crispants
