For over 5 years now I have been a apple fanboy. I decided to switch as everyone [Blogs] said that Apple products were smarter, better, faster, safer. I have to admit that I have been impressed over the years with the portfolio of products that Apple have brought out such as the iPhone, and iPad. However as the world becomes more mobile and the requirement to have easy access to ones content, I have a new conffession to make. I think i have just fallen in love with the new Microsoft Surface.
The Surface measures in at 9.3mm thick, which, you can see from the video above, is pretty thin. The device features one USB port, and has a 10.6″ ClearType display. The detachable cover [Which is a real selling point for me] is a mere 3mm thick, and is pressure sensitive with low-profile keys, doubling as a trackpad. If You want to buy the Surface it went up for pre-order on October 16th, and is available from $499, which makes it pretty stiff competition for the same-priced 16GB iPad. The $499 version features 32GB of storage, and does not include the cover. The price jumps to $599 if you get it with the Touch Cover. The last option comes in at $699, and offers 64GB of storage with a black Touch Cover. The covers can also be purchased separately for $119.99. Will I buy one? Maybe. I think I’ll wait to see what Apple does next.
