Microsoft’s Surface Tablet Samsung SUR40 Goes on Pre-order

Microsoft and Samsung have unveiled the Microsoft's second generation surface computer, making it available for pre-order in 23 countries.

With a starting price tag of $8,400, the SUR40 surface computer has been designed like a table with its top covered in a massive touch screen.

The table computer, which first made its debut at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, comes with a flat touch screen designed by Samsung and users will be able to use it either on the table or mount it on the wall.

Microsoft, apart from focusing on the new design for the system, has included a powerful new processor and system software along with new sensor technology which would make touch more accurate and easy to use.

The Surface SUR40 is powered by the Athlon X2 Dual-Core 245e running at 2.9GHz and 4GB DDR3 memory and comes with a massive 40 inch touch screen.

"This pre-order phase brings us one step closer to getting the highly anticipated Samsung SUR40 for Microsoft Surface into the hands of our customers," said Samsung electronics vice president Charles Park reports The Sacramento Bee (opens in new tab).

"The Samsung SUR40 delivers a unique interactive experience that will significantly change the way companies engage with their customers," he added.
