They MS-tery Within
Curiously while MS has been forthcoming about many aspects of Surface, including the clever keyboards, it's taken a much more muted position on the rest of the tech inside the tablets.
There's much less of the MHz and GB and three-core, front-side bus, on-die cache malarkey that typically goes on when someone's promoting a Microsoft-powered conventional computer.
We do know the entry level devices will be powered by an Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, and will rock a 31.5 Watt-hour lithium battery inside a 9.3mm thin case. It'll also have an "HD" display versus the "Full HD" display of the Pro version (resolution unknown). This more expensive machine will be powered by a familiar Intel CPU and be 13.5mm deep, presumably to enclose the fatter 42 Watt-hour battery needed to run the thirstier CPU.
And that's about it. Refreshingly un-techy, isn't it?
