Windows So, the Microsoft announcement - taking place as I write this, 01:45 in my timezone - turns out to be a bigger deal than expected. Microsoft just announced it's going full-on hardware - the company announced a new tablet called 'Surface', and boy, is this thing something to behold. Microsoft's hardware partners? They're not happy right now. Update: Here's Microsoft's official Surface site. I believe someone coined the phrase 'sexy as a succubus' in the comments about Vizio? Stealin' it! Update II: They aren't just taking the iPad head-on - this is a straight-up MacBook Air competitor.

There are actually two Surface models.

The higher end one has:

- A full HD 1080p screen (with bonded glass and great viewing angles)
- 64 GB and 128GB of storage
- DisplayPort for outputting greater than 1080p
- A 22nm Core i5 processor which bests anything in any ultrabook announced
- Micro SDCX port
- Support for legacy Windows applications
- Pen digitizer support for writing

It is the uber tablet for productivity
