Microsoft Surface RT is a decently made tablet released in 2012, equipped with a large 10.6 inches multi-touch display, a 1 MP back facing camera and a great performance Quad-Core CPU clocking at 1300 MHz. Let's take a closer look at what this device can give us.

This tablet is equipped with a good performance Quad-Core processor ticking at 1.3 GHz, included in a NVIDIA Tegra 3 T30 chip with a great 2 GB RAM. Graphic rendering often consume lots of processor time, so the Microsoft Surface RT uses an extra ULP GeForce GPU ticking at 520 megahertz to help with that calculations. This device counts with a great 32 GB internal storage memory and a slot for an SD memory card, more than enough to store hundreds of apps and even the heaviest games currently available without thinking about filling the device.

Microsoft didn't seem to put much effort to reduce weight in this 24 ounces tablet. The Microsoft Surface RT has a gorgeous design, with a thickness of just 0.37 inches. This tablet only has 10.81 inches long and 6.77" wide, but it still manages to hold a 10.6 inches screen.

Microsoft equipped this tablet with a nice 10.6 inches display, and a resolution of 768 x 1366 , which makes all photos and movies look nice.

This device only has a 1 MP back-facing camera. It is capable of shooting videos in Full HD 1920x1080.

The Microsoft Surface RT doesn't use a SIM card, because it doesn't support GSM services.

The Microsoft Surface RT also includes Bluetooth (4.0), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

Microsoft is selling this device for 300 dollars, which is quite a high price for a device this level.
