Microsoft Surface

So Microsoft have just announced two tablets their producing in-house to go with the launch of Windows 8 and shieeeeeet. Me like.

There will be two versions: one with an ARM chipset which most tablets and smartphones today use; and a second one with Windows Pro and a ivy bridge i5 chipset inside making it essentially a full powered computer, comparable to the capabilities of today’s ultrabooks. Hell, couple that with its options for decent storage space (32, 64 or 128 Gbs), HDMI out, MicroSD slot, USB port and a ‘smart cover’ with an built-in keyboard and touch pad and these babies look to be just perfect for what I’ve been searching for in a new portable computing device.
