Expert review by : Joel Santo Domingo (

Microsoft Surface Windows 8 Pro


The Microsoft Surface Windows 8 Pro is the Windows 8 slate tablet to beat when you need the performance and convenience of a PC in a compact tablet form factor.

Compact. Improved UI: Things don't look "too small" in desktop mode. Comes with pressure-sensitive stylus. Works with Surface covers. Truly Windows compatible. Ultrabook components. Full 1080p HD screen. 10-finger touch screen.

Keyboard cover is an optional extra. Only one USB 3.0 port. VGA and HDMI require optional adapters.
