Microsoft is now getting into the hardware development of windows PC's. They have made hardware in the past including mice, webcams and keyboards but nothing of this caliber.

All the technology going into this is really getting me stoked on what is to come from Microsoft. The ability to connect a tablet to an external monitor and is powered by 3rd gen.

What will be next from Microsoft?
