Microsoft Surface / Windows 8 RT

This last week I was able to get my hands on the new Microsoft Surface for a bit and boy was I impressed. Being a Microsoft fan I had pretty high expectations for their new tablet and I wasn't disappointed. Their design is quite economical and gives a feel of productivity. The RT version of windows 8 was complete and function quite smoothly, but I will say that I'm disappointed that it cannot run typical programs, though I completely understand there direction for a simple, smooth, responsive, workhorse tablet. If you want the tablet that will have the entire Windows 8 features you'll unfortunately have to wait for the Surface Pro that will have an Intel i5, which should provide enough speed for any user. The only thing holding me back from purchasing a Surface right this moment is that Microsoft will most likely drop the price once the Pro model is released so just wait a couple months you impatient bastards! Anyway, this tablet has a strong productivity vibe so if you're looking for a tablet that can edit documents, play games, and get work done with might just be the device for you. Check it out!

This picture shows the Surface with its attachable keyboard, it uses magnets for a secure connection, no plugs. Also notice the back stand which is built into the tablet. Check out the commercial and an official review courtesy of Engadget.

Asus Transformer TF101 32gb

This summer I picked up and Asus Transformer TF101 with the docking station and I have to say that this is a very nice tablet for the money. I bought it primarily for taking notes, reading pdf's, browsing and portability and it surpassed all my expectations and then some. This tablets runs the latest version of Android and has incredible battery life (10 hours on tablet and 8 more hours with the docking station, 18 hours total). I find it almost impossible to kill the battery on this beast. If you're looking for an affordable tablet took no further and check out the transformer series from Asus.

Logitech VX Nano Laser Wireless Mouse

I have been using this wireless mouse for over 4 years and this is by far the best mouse I have owned. The battery life is fantastic being that I use this mouse everyday and I change the batteries maybe once a year. The USB receiver is incredibly small and takes up almost no space. I have dropped this mouse, accidently, many times from heights that I were certain would leave the mouse out of commission yet it has never failed me. This mouse this quite handy and I definitely recommend.

Windows 8 Developer Preview VS Consumer Preview

I've been using the developers preview for a few months and I finally upgraded to the consumer preview. I have to say that I am quite impressed. There are a few more functions that have been added yet it still has the same familiar feel of the developers preview. My overall boot time has increased slightly yet overall performance and "smoothness" has greatly improved. I'm getting even more excited for the release of the official Windows 8 platform and recommend you check out the consumer preview for a test run.

The New Apple iPad (iPad HD/3)

Today Apple unveiled its newest iPad and it will be available to purchase on March 17, 2012. This new iPad boasts a 1536 x 2048 pixel resolution, double that of the iPad 2. It also has improved battery life, 4g data compatibility, better cameras and a faster processor. In comparison to the iPad 2 this device will definitely outperform its predecessor but only if you're willing to dish out the hefty price tag. The starting price is still the same as the iPad 2: $499 for 16 gigabytes of memory, $599 for 32GB and $699 for 64GB but Apple will be cutting the 16 GB iPad 2 by $100 to $399. If you're in the market for a tablet device you should check out Apples latest creation and see what you think.
