It has been more than a month since Microsoft released its Surface tablet. According to official information, Surface RT will be available in Windows 8, and Surface Pro will be available three months later. We are expected to meet Surface RT in October this year. How do we choose Surface RT and Surface Pro?

First, let's take a look at the hardware configurations of these two versions. Since RT will become the main competitor of the iPad, It is lighter and lighter than Pro in terms of size and weight. The processor uses the nvidia arm chip, while the Pro uses the Intel i5 processor. Because of the difference between the processor and the operating system, RT only supports Windows 8 applications in Windows Store, but Windows applications in the past do not. Because Pro is configured in the same way as a normal notebook and uses a Windows 8 Pro operating system, it is compatible with all Windows applications. From other aspects, we can see that the features and features of Pro are better than RT, and the estimated price is much higher than RT.
