The tablet PC market place has increasingly become a more crowded space in recent times with a whole host of new products being launched to provide something for almost everyone. A couple of months ago Microsoft launched the Surface tablet PC, and today we have news of the device reaching both Best Buy and Staples in time for Christmas.
Online and retail store company Staples has revealed that it will provide consumers the Microsoft Surface device as from today, which will be from all the retailers’ locations and its online store. The retailer has revealed that the device will come preloaded with Office Home & Student 2013RT among the many other features.
For your money you get an integrated kickstand, Gorilla Glass 2, two 720 p HD video cameras, 16:9 widescreen HD ClearType display, and much more packed into a form factor weighing only 1.5lbs. The Surface is priced from $499 for the RT 32GB model and goes up to $599 with the Black Touch Cover, or $699 for the 64GB model with Black Touch Cover.
Those that purchase the device from Staples will get the exclusive 8 Was Easy offer that gives users free support, free start-up, and free personalized training. Anyone getting the Surface that is priced from $699 or above will also get free data transfer from an old PC.
Customers of the retailer also have support from over 4,000 Certified Advisors that are certified by Microsoft that have great knowledge of the device and the new operating system.
