More About this Tablet

As the name implies, the Surface RT runs Windows RT, rather than a pure version of Windows 8. While this variation is built to support ARM-based chips and provide better battery life, it does have certain shortcomings, such as the inability to any apps other than those found in the Windows Store (this means no software written for Windows 7 or before).

The device has a 10-inch display, and a microSDXC memory card slot. It is Wi-Fi only — there is no version with 3G or 4G cellular-wireless networking.
