Post A first look at Microsoft's new Surface tablet

Not actually a Surface.


Microsoft hasunveiled Surface: a pair of tablet PCs and a pair of covers-cum-keyboards, designed for, and designed around, its Windows 8 operating system.

At the launch event, however, the software took the back seat. This was all about the hardware, and with good reason.

The Surface tablets are smart, good-looking, carefully considered, well built, slick pieces of kit, and there's nothing even close on the market today. Of course, they're not on the market today either, but unless the PC OEMs inject a serious dose of quality in their their build and design processes, the Surface units will stand alone when they eventually go on sale.
