Full Review: Microsoft Surface with Windows RT

updated 08:29 am EST, Tue November 13, 2012

Scratching beneath the Surface

The Microsoft Surface with Windows RT arrives a full two years after Apple reinvented the tablet market. Microsoft and its partners had struggled along valiantly with convertible notebooks that could work in a tablet mode, but they were just too heavy and impractical. Within the first several months of the iPad launching, it quickly outsold the sum total of all Windows tablet PCs ever sold, even though they had been on the market for years. So the question is, has Microsoft managed to bring something new to the table? Read our full review of the Surface RT to find out.

    What is with the link to another link which is the story that should have been linked to in the first place.
    This is absurd.

    Regarding the whole Surface thing, having 2 different modes of operation (both completely different) is too confusing.
    This thing has fail written all over it.

    This RT thing has Zune (and Kin) written all over it. It's no iPad killer. Windows 8 is a bundle of festering pus, and the Surface RT is aimed at the tech-ignorant price conscious buyer. It won't take long before they'll have an electric paperweight.

    Was this review typed on a Surface with the typing cover? I hope so, because otherwise there could be no excuse for all the typos.
