Today we will bring you a quick guide and breakdown on what is this so called “Surface”. What is a Surface Tablet? Lets go ahead and start from the beginning where it all began with Microsoft.

What Is A Surface Tablet?

Microsoft Surface is a series of Windows-based tablet computers, laplets and interactive whiteboards designed and manufactured by Microsoft under its hardware division, part of the Windows and Devices group. The first generation of tablets was introduced, on June 18, 2012. The most recent models, the Surface Pro 3 and the Surface 3, were released on June 20, 2014, and May 5, 2015, respectively.

The Surface tablet family consists of two lines: the Surface line designed for budget-oriented consumers and educational users, and the Surface Pro line, designed for professional users. Surface Hub, an interactive whiteboard, is an offshoot of the Surface tablet. All devices ship with Microsoft’s own Windows operating system. Some models can also run other operating systems not supported by Microsoft. Surface tablets are notable for their sliding out kickstand, which supports the tablet while it stands at an angle, and optional detachable magnetic keyboards which also double as a protective screen cover.

With the release of the Surface 3, Surface devices (3rd generation forth) and all Surface Pro devices use Intel processors and run the Windows 10 OS.

I love everything to do with Microsoft Windows, and the new Windows 10 is great so far. I love to spend my time researching on how viruses and bacteria work in my personal lab. I also enjoy history and comics.
