  • Surface tablet with stand

    The Surface tablet comes with a fold-out kickstand. USB and HDMI ports mean you can attach standard PC accessories and use it more like a traditional laptop.

  • Touch Covers

    Speaking of accessories, the Surface also comes with a range of exceedingly colourful Touch Covers. The Touch Cover is a 3mm-thick keyboard that attaches to the tablet magnetically. It has a sheet of sensors inside that respond to keyboard presses — though not, apparently, to random brushes of the arm.
