Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Since the introduction of the iPad in 2010, the entire world has gone tablet crazy. While Apple pretty much created the mainstream market for these devices, Microsoft actually got there first—hybrid tablet/laptops running Windows have existed since the 90s. Unlike Apple, Microsoft doesn’t generally produce their own hardware; they prefer to let dozens of manufacturers fight over standards and pricing. In fact, the Surface RT is the first computer Microsoft has ever made. The Surface RT is one part of a larger reinvention of Microsoft’s core product, the Windows operating system. Windows 8, a special version of which powers the new Surface Tablet, is the most significant update that Windows has ever seen. There’s a little bit of a learning curve, but we’re confident that by the time you finish reading this guide, you’ll be singing the praises of this unique device to anyone who’ll listen. Ready? Let’s jump right in!
