Compatibility, consistency and familiarity win Chris Drage over to the Surface RT and Windows 8
So what is the Surface RT? And what is the Surface RT Pro? And how do they relate to Windows 8? We had hoped to bring you a review of both Microsoft’s new tablets: the Surface Pro and the Surface RT. But the demand for review models at BETT 2013 meant that only the Surface RT has been available.
There has been considerable misunderstanding about the precise nature of these hardware offerings and Windows 8 generally. Hopefully we can begin to clarify the situation.
