The Surface is ensconced in an ultra light durable casing, features an integrated kickstand and Touch Cover and boasts a 22-degree angle that make it optimal for viewing and sharing content easily. There's even a full-sized USB port - something which some of the Surface's competitors lack.

In the Store, customers were enamoured with the Surface's 16:9 widescreen, high-definition display. That's one of the things that strikes you when you hold one in your hands, the other is how amazingly light it feels. In New York people were queuing just so they could pick one up.
