Pros

  • Inspired industrial design; nifty kickstand and keyboard options
  • Fun, fluid, powerful touch gestures
  • Delivers legit Microsoft Office support--on a tablet, no less!

Cons

  • Display isn't world-class
  • Windows RT is the hobbled alternative to Windows 8

At A Glance

Surface RT is packed with productivity potential, and finds a certain measure of success in reinventing the tablet form factor. But its hardware isn't perfect, and its Windows RT operating system lacks flexibility and app support.
