Microsoft Surface RT

Microsoft's Surface with Windows RT ($499 for 32GB) is not your father's tablet. It emerges out of the box ready to deal with more than your usual tablet needs. First, its Internet Explorer 10 browser works with the vast majority of sites designed for the desktop. Pay your bills, watch Flash animation and video, and network with friends on Facebook just as you would on your notebook or desktop. Next, try out the built-in USB port for thumb drives, external hard drives, a mouse or a keyboard. Then, go find a networked home printer and use it. It just works -- no third-party apps needed. Finally, check out the tiny micro SDXC port hidden under the kickstand. It lets you add up to 64 GB of media storage space. And don't forget the ultra-thin Touch Cover option ($119.99) that protects the display and gives you a physical keyboard while adding a minimum of extra weight and thickness.
