Hey again,

thanks for the info.

I forgot to ask, how much does the tablet weigh with the folio and without the folio case?

And if you say it's a flip case, how is it held in place (i.e. kept closed)?

Thanks.
Should be 2.1 lbs (0.95 kg) for the tablet itself. I'm not really sure about the weight with the folio, maybe around another additional 0.4kg? I'm not sure.

It's kept close but if u hold only 1 side of the case (maybe the keyboard part not the whole case) the case will just open up and in 180 degrees?

Hey Benks1994,

thanks for the info.

That's still fairly light I think.

As for the case hmm... quite scary but I guess you have to hold it. I thought there'd be some magnet to hold it there.

Yeah a bit disappointing that there isn't a magnetic securing system... and won't the keyboard scratch the screen if it's folded up? There doesn't seem to be any protection at all...

Kinda but on the keyboard there is rubbers on the side and corner so that the keyboard won't directly touch the screen and the screen is gorilla glass i guess? So I guess it's ok, as long as you don't slam it dam hard. I think I will open a Discussion forum for the w700 soon, we can't keep discussing it on the Microsoft surface thread.

Hey Benks1994,

Its worth the purchase btw.. Its amazing to see how much the performance have improved since I got the RT back on December.. (There's almost a firmware update each month, 4 so far.)

most noticeable lags, performance issue have been ironed out


can't wait for Windows Blue improvements this June.

ya, rt version only.

The Microsoft Surface RT tablet will officially be launched in Singapore on April 5.

Users can experience the 10-inch tablet, which will run on the Windows RT operating system, from 5.30pm at the Funan DigitaLife Mall's Challenger store and the device will officially go on sale at 7pm.

Singapore will be the first country in Southeast Asia to launch the product and both the 32GB and 64GB versions will be available here.

Pricing details have yet to be revealed, but stay tuned for updates.

Webpage naming is misleading. One of the pictures shown has the Pro's stylus. Super misleading.
