This awesome new machinery comes with a sturdy, integrated kickstand and a SmartCover-esque cover, that features a fully functioning keyboard, with a trackpad. It connects with a “single magnetic click”. Tight right?


“I can touch type on this as fast as I can type on any keyboard.” said Microsoft’s Michael Angiulo. The Touch Cover comes in five colors – black, red, blue, and pink.


The surface also comes with two cameras called “LifeCams” The rear-facing camera is angled so when positioned on a kickstand, it can still record meetings or any other event thats going on.


To top everything off, being that this is a full-on PC it can run true PC games.


Microsoft has stated the tablet-PC hybrids will be priced competitively, but no mention of price or release date was mentioned. So I guess will just be waiting to see what they got to unveil about it next!

Expression through words is common among people. Life is a bitch and record sales are not even making hits. The game is a struggle and people like me sit back and watch everything fall into rubble. But what keeps me moving is life and friends. Tragedies and break ups open up the human mind...my work is my story.
