    Surface RT is packed with productivity potential, and finds a certain measure of success in reinventing the tablet form factor. But its hardware isn't perfect, and its Windows RT operating system lacks flexibility and app support.

    MSRP: $499 for 32GB tablet alone; $599 for 32GB tablet plus Touch Cover; $699 for 64GB tablet plus Touch Cover

    Pros

    • Inspired industrial design; nifty kickstand and keyboard options
    • Fun, fluid, powerful touch gestures
    • Delivers legit Microsoft Office support--on a tablet, no less!

    Cons

    • Display isn't world-class
    • Windows RT is the hobbled alternative to Windows 8
