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!
