I’m a big techy girl – I seriously could not do what I do every day without my tech accessories. In March I introduced you to my laptop, the Acer Aspire S7 (click here to read post). This month I’d like to introduce you to my Microsoft Surface Tablet!
This tablet could actually replace the laptop – I, personally, switch between both! It runs on Windows 8.1 (which you know I’m obsessed with) and NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor providing incredibly fast performance and longer battery life. The battery actually lasts about 10 hours! It is very light weight at approx. 1.5 lbs. and has a 10.6 in. screen.
The dual-angle kick stand and typing covers make it easy to set-up on a desk, your lap or even on an airplane. I heart my purple typing cover which also comes in lots of other fashionable colors. Note the typing cover has to be purchased separately.
The surface is great for at home or at work but is seriously the best tool for students! Just graduated and heading to college – grab you up one of these NOW (I sure wish I had one when I was in college)! Use the Surface’s camera to record lectures, take notes, stay organized and even check your email.
Microsoft is NOW demoing the new Surface Pro 3 in stores and includes an amazing 12-inch screen! Pro-order by clicking here.
This really is the neatest tablet – not to mention you’ll look fabulous while carrying it around!
Now time for some apps that I’m loving! You’ll notice a sports theme today because the hubs and I are obsessed with The World Cup!
