Microsoft Tablet Surface to run on Windows RT and Windows 8

Microsoft have announced their iPad competitor a Tablet PC known as Surface. Windows RT is an operation system known during development as ARM - supporting devices like Tablets. The new Surface run on Windows RT and Windows 8 for those devices that have intel chips inside them. The RT version will come in both 32 GB and 64 GB models while the Windows 8 Pro version will come in 64 GB and 128 GB models. The device has a screen and a keyboard which can be folded. The device thus opens up like a laptop computer with the cover functioning as a keyboard. The surface tables will work with a Stylus which will attach itself to the tablet with a magnet. In an interview done by Malcolm Gladwell he speaks about how the original tablet idea came from Microsoft but was created by Steve Jobs and Apple. This he says is because when he heard the Microsoft guy presenting it he spoke about the device using a Stylus and Steve Jobs hated Styluses. Microsoft have anyways come out with a tablet PC that uses a Stylus. 

Check out the video below from Microsoft. The video is just 6 hours old and has over 10 thousand likes. There are the dislikes also flowing in but the debate is going on and as you might have guessed it is between MS-Fans and apple Fanboys. One user saying that with the keyboard and the magic pen it has everything an iPad lacks. The tablet is definitely showing promise. Please add your comments below and let us know what you think about the new Tablet like PC.
