Product information

Where work meets play. The power of Windows, the productivity of Office Home & Student 2013 RT, and the joy of Xbox, music, movies, and games not to mention apps, social media, music and more. Surface is also cloud-connected with SkyDrive, so you can access your content from anywhere, at any time.

Product Highlights:

  • Super thin with a depth of just 0.37inches it is perfectly portable and ultra compact. The exterior is made from a highly durable VaporMg that is three times lighter than aluminium. 
  • The screen’s 16:9 aspect ratio is ideal for watching HD movies and playing games. The extra-wide viewing angle lets you share content with people around you.


  • The integrated Kickstand enables hands-free entertainment. To use Surface as a tablet, just flip the Kickstand closed and it disappears into the casing.


  • Surface is equipped with front and rear-facing LifeCam cameras so you can capture all of life’s important moments in photos or video. The rear camera is angled upwards at 22 degrees, so when Surface is resting on the Kickstand, the camera looks straight ahead.


  • Surface with Windows RT is incredibly thin, but still features a full-size USB port, microSD card slot and HD video out port. Easily transfer files or use compatible accessories.


  • Live tiles and notifications keep the info you want flowing to you in real time. With connected standby and up to 8 hours of battery life, you're always up to date.


  • Pin favourites to your Start screen, and arrange them the way you want. Create your unique picture password to sign in.


  • Surface with Windows RT is designed to run apps from the Windows Store, so you know you’re finding trusted applications that help you see more, share more and do more.


  • Keyboard Sold Separately.

Does the job Bought this surface as a 70th birthday present. It's easy to use and we both enjoy using it. Long battery life and very clear screen. Occasionally it is a little slow to load pages, but it is a minor irrigation. We don't use many apps, but those we do are fine. 18 February 2014
Fantastic tablet I've had this for 2 months now and just love it. As a teacher I do lots of work at home and the Surface is great as it means that I can use all of the Office software such as Word and PowerPoint which means that's it a mini laptop essentially. In fact I haven't used my laptop once in two months and will only be using it for PhotoShop and InDesign now. I have the Touch keyboard which I would highly recommend and its so easy to take the keyboard off and on. The picture quality is excellent and we regularly use the Surface to watch Netflix and the iPlayer in bed! 27 January 2014
Doesn't work - it's rubbish Don't buy this tablet. The first one I bought failed after 4 weeks. John Lewis to their credit replaced it without hesitation. However the replacement has now also failed and I will be requesting a refund. I bought this tablet for my wife's birthday because she wanted to use XL and word. However, apart from those applications, this tablet has nothing worthwhile to offer. The hardware is very nice but the software is useless. There is hardly any functionality - it can't even handle photos in an acceptable manner. Yesterday even though it was connected to the net, it would not connect to the app store with the error message that it was not connected to the internet. Compared to an Apple Ipad, this is a massively inferior product because the software is hopeless. 24 November 2013
