Microsoft Surface threatens the Macbook Air & iPad

June 24, 2012

Microsoft made a big splash when it unveiled Surface, a new line of Windows 8-powered tablets. With a detachable magnetic cover that doubles as a keyboard, Microsoft’s soon-to-be-released device transforms itself into an ultra-portable productivity center that could supplant laptops.

Consumers will have their choice of getting the MacBook Air for work and an iPad for play, or killing two birds with one stone by buying Microsoft’s beautifully designed, ultra-fast tablet that doubles as a lean full computer.

Surface might be the first tablet to give the iPad some serious competition, but there’s still no price tag, no release date, and no real specs — just a couple of journalists who got to play with a Surface prototype for a few minutes.
