Windows 8 Tablet Review: Microsoft Surface RT

Microsoft ventures into the tablet world

Today we're reviewing Microsoft's first touchscreen tablet designed to show off its new Windows 8 operating system. Here, we're looking at the Windows "RT" model, running a version of the new OS designed specifically for devices with ARM-type mobile processors. 

Microsoft has changed course, it seems, venturing into new territory with a totally revamped Windows 8 OS and a touchscreen tablet available with or without a super-slim keyboard. And seeing as Microsoft isn't doing things by halves with its latest Windows device, the Surface tablet is due to sell in two versions—one running Windows RT and one running Windows 8 Pro. With the Surface RT, reviewed here, you don't get a full-blown version of Windows 8, but a more touchscreen-oriented interface linked closely to the Windows Store for content and apps.
