Microsoft Surface Tablet 8

The release of the Microsoft Surface tablet in October brought a wave of mixed feelings about the software company's foray into the tablet world. With so many other companies vying for the top position, and armed with powerful devices, many felt that Microsoft was coming up short with the Surface tablet.

It wasn't even so much about what the tablet itself contained, but rather the operating system that it was running off of WindowsRT  is the ARM version of the Windows OS, and thought it specifically designed for special devices such as tablets, many felt that the limitations were outdoing the advantages. Overall, the perspective of Windows RT is that it was unnecessary and somewhat inferior to the developments with in the tech industry, even from Microsoft themselves.

With that, the Microsoft Surface tablet featuring the Windows 8 operating system will be released towards the beginning of January of 2013. This newer, fresher version of Surface is already winning over the minds of those that have had the opportunity to use and review it.

If you've grown jaded by all of the talk that tends to surround the Apple iPad and the Google Nexus tablets, perhaps take some time to see what the Microsoft Surface tablet could be offering, and how it will greatly outdo its Windows RT predecessor.

Bigger Drive. Bigger Space.

One of the most noteworthy features that will arrive on the Windows 8 version is a doubling in both the drive capacity, as well as the space. This means that from the RT version that features 32GB and 2GB of memory, the Windows 8 Pro version will be rolling with 64GB (to start) and 4GB of memory. There will also be an option to get a 128GB tablet for $100 more than the 64 (a point I will get to later).

The increase in memory is thanks to the built-in Intel Core i5 processor, which is upgraded from the Nvidia Tegra 3 processor that existed in the Surface RT.

Screen Resolution

While the resolution on the Surface RT was 1,366X768, this will be improved with Surface Windows 8 at 1,920x1,080. The screen size of 10.6 inches will remain the same, so what you'll be getting is a significantly improved resolution.

Surface with Windows 8 Will Be More Compatible

Since the Windows 8 Pro version will be running with the now-standard Windows 8 operating system, it will be able to run more like a notebook than a tablet. You can run more software programs that would not have been possible with the ARM processor that was on RT. This to me, is probably the biggest selling point between the two.

The Price

Now this is where you might start to cringe, because the 64GB version of Windows 8 Pro is running at $899, and the 128GB version will be going for $999. At the beginning price, you'll be looking at a doubling from the RT version which sells for $499. This is quite a bit of money to throw down for a tablet, and now you might begin to understand why the word “Pro” is in the name.

Realize what you are getting when the two are compared, and it might start making a bit more sense. Generally, you have to be quite the Windows 8 fan to invest in such a heavy product, but you'll certainly be rolling with something unique.
