In Pictures: Windows 8 Surface RT

Is this tablet the iPad killer?

The two keyboards

Surface RT has two detachable keyboards, one called Touch, the other called Type. Touch (the blue one in the photo) is just 3mm thick and the keys don’t move when you strike them although there is a soft clicking noise. It’s made of a suede-like material and has notches in the f and j keys so you can feel where your fingers ought to be. The Type keyboard is thicker at 5mm but has mechanical keys that depress when struck. Surface RT without a keyboard: $499; bundled with Touch ($599). Keyboards separate: $120 for Touch, $130 for Type. Touch comes in four colors other than black that cost $20 more.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
