The article will provide a reader with information on Microsoft Surface tablet. The design credentials and specification of Microsoft Surface Tablet is attractive. It’s thin, it’s light, it’s comfortable to hold, it runs Windows RT as excellently, it makes a user want to touch it but it’s also designed so a user can snap the magnetically attached cover into place.
Design The front is sleek black glass, precision bonded to the magnesium alloy, with only a Windows logo visible – the word Microsoft doesn’t show up on the case anywhere. Turn it on and the 10.6″ screen fills most of the Surface’s front display, but the four edges have half an inch of bezel so that a user can hold it comfortably. The Windows logo isn’t just for show; it’s a touch button that gives a user the Start screen when he/she taps on it, plus the whole bezel is touch-aware so a user can swipe across it to bring up the App bar or the switching pane.
The Surface is light and comfortable to hold; the edges are sloped to provide a user with a comfortable grip. The magnesium alloy chassis is covered with a soft coating that feels durable and expensive. If a user doesn’t want to hold it, there’s a built-in stand that’s like a large hinge running across the entire back of the Surface, with another Windows logo in a slightly matte finish.
The hinge is usually held in place by an array of magnets so it doesn’t fall out if a user shakes the Surface around; on the left there’s a little cutout in the edge of the hinge to make it easier to flip out. The Surface tablet also balances well on the hinge, which has two long rubber feet to stabilise it. With the Touch Cover on, a user can easily balance the Surface on a lap for typing like a notebook without it falling forward or tipping over backwards.
T bottohem edge is filled with the magnetic keyboard connector, the top has the power button and the sides have two speakers, dual microphones, microSD, one USB 2.0 port (USB 3.0 for the Surface Pro) and Micro HDMI (on the surface Pro that’s mini DisplayPort), plus a magnetic power connector.
The magnesium alloy chassis and the precision design give the Surface RT a sturdy feel. The Touch Cover is the ultra-thin touch keyboard for those that value portability; the Type Cover is the slightly thicker keyboard with physical buttons for those that want keys that actually move rather than just the audio feedback of the Touch Cover. Both have the same connection and they snap into the magnetic latch easily but firmly; little latches fit into the Surface itself, which is why it stays in place even if a user is holding the cover and letting the keyboard drop under its own weight.
