Testing out Microsoft Surface and Windows RT

Posted by Charbax – November 2, 2012

Here's my first playing around with the $599 Microsoft Surface with Touch Keyboard and other new Windows RT devices from Dell, Asus and Lenovo that are being released to the market.

I think the $599 is a bit expensive, and I'd like a full Chrome browser on RT, I'd like remote access to all x86 apps streamed over a cloud based x86 app hosting service, I'd like Google Search and Google Maps instead of Bing Search and Bing Maps, but otherwise I think the Surface is pretty cool! Lenovo also shows a pretty impressive 11.6" Windows RT laptop, the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11, but at $799 it's quite expensive.
