Surface tablet

Microsoft's first tablet computer, introduced at the end of 2012. The Surface originally came in two forms: ARM-based tablets that ran Windows RT and x86-based tablets that ran Windows 8 (see below). All RT tablets were subsequently eliminated (see Windows RT). Starting in 2015, Microsoft introduced additional Surface-branded products (see Surface versions).

Not the First Hardware for Microsoft
Although known for software, Microsoft has also been successful with mice, keyboards and the Xbox game console. However, for more than 30 years, Microsoft depended on third-party PC vendors for Windows hardware until it introduced the Surface line. See also PixelSense.
