Microsoft Surface

Microsoft is offering two different models of this slick tablet. One has an ARM processor and Windows RT, while the other comes with a third-gen Intel Core processor and Windows 8. Both versions have a 10.6-inch touchscreen and front- and rear-facing cameras. The RT comes in 32GB and 64GB options, with a microSD slot, a USB 2.0 port, micro HD video, and 2x2 MIMO antennae connections. The Windows 8 model has 64GB and 128GB options, with microSDXC, USB 3.0, and a mini DisplayPort video connector. The hook on this one, however, is that shoppers can opt for a Touch Cover, which flips down to reveal a full keyboard on the fly.

MSRP: $499 (tablet only), $599 (32GB with Touch Cover), $699 (64GB with Touch Cover)
