The Microsoft Surface Tablet | With Windows 8 OS

by 8 Bit BritJune 19, 2012

It has been announced!  Microsoft’s new addition to the computing race the ‘Microsoft Surface Tablet‘ will be available this fall. You can count on the Surface to debut along side with Microsoft’s new operating system ‘Windows 8‘. The tablet will be using the new OS as well.

The tablet has been rumored to be a next gen gaming tablet to a rumored mimic of the iPad… which infuriates me since Microsoft originally had plans for a tablet that did not make the trend years before the iPad. This will be mentioned in another rant by me, so stay tuned for that. Anyways, the Surface is going to be Microsoft’s first working touch screen tablet with their new OS and is supposed to be extremely customizable. The people like to customize.

The Microsoft Surface Tablet

Since the tablet is still in prototype all we get to see right now is a video off their site The tablet is sleek, thin and has a built in stand that seems to double as a keyboard. Fancy! Pricing has not been mentioned yet. We will just have to wait and see how it fairs up to the oh-so popular iPad. Rumors mention Xbox 360 capabilities too! Can’t wait to see if that is true.

Stay tuned to The Game Fanatics for more news and updates on Microsoft’s Surface Tablet.

    I had a free trial of microsoft expression web 2 for class, but it has expired so now I’m trying to buy the software. I looked on the microsoft website, but I can only find where they’re selling the newest version, microsoft expression web 3. I’m wondering if there’s much of a difference between the two and if I should go ahead and buy the M. E. Web 3.
    Any suggestions?

    Microsoft was founded in 1975 and Apple was founded in 1976, which is just one year later. Then how did Microsoft manage to achieve over 80% of the market share and Apple only about 5-10%?

    My laptop broke and the place that fixed it had to remove and replace the hard drive. This meant I lost all the programs installed on it. Unfortunately, that includes Microsoft Office 2007. But I still have the product key (a 25 digit code). Is it possible, and how can I, reinstall Microsoft Office? I really need it for college work.

    I bought an Alienware laptop that came with microsoft student pre-installed. Recently, I had to restore it to its factory edition, however Microsoft Office wasn’t installed. I have the product code for the program, but I cant find where to redeem it on the website to just directly install it. Just a link would be fine. Thanks :)

    I have a toyota highlander 2004. I can hear some grinding sound when breaking or trying to stop while running at low speed but not while running at high speed. It appears that break pads are not the problem as their remaining thickness in my last maintenance service is still around 40%. Is this normal or what could possibly the problem of my car?

Because it only came with 1 license product key that you can use 3 times. Do I some how De-authorize the one on my laptop, if so how?
