Microsoft Surface Tablet Review (Windows RT / 64GB)

For a company that is all about operating systems Microsoft have had a very mixed recent history. Windows Vista for example received some really negative feedback initially with the average consumer just not being able to get their head round the new OS compared to the mature XP experience. In truth the OS was decent and Windows 7 went a long way to streamlining the Windows platform getting it to a stage where most were very happy. Windows Phone 7 impressed too, in fact it is a great mobile operating system with the only real issue being a lack of apps, or at least some key software which is available on iOS and Android.

Windows 8… since Microsoft previewed the new OS for desktop use it has been highly criticised for forcing a UI on consumers which isn’t ideal for current hardware. More knowledgeable users can improve the experience though, working around the decisions Microsoft have made and we use it here in the office with the likes of Start 8 making life a lot easier.

One of the aspects of Windows 8 Pro that really stands out when using it is that the operating system feels very much like it is designed for new, touch based hardware. For that reason one of the devices that should offer a great experience is Surface, Microsofts own tablet which runs a streamlined version of Windows 8, Windows RT. Today we take a look at the Surface to see if the new Windows experience finds an ideal home on the new hardware and if the tablet itself can compete in the high end of the mobile market.


Packaging and Bundle

An over complex box design is not a claim that can be aimed at Microsoft as the Surface arrives in a very minimalist box. Even the sides and back have barely any information. We slide the white section out of the black cover and it folds open to reveal the tablet, wrapped in plastic with the bundled items off to the left. The bundled items are (basic) product documentation, PSU and plug.
