Microsoft has announced a cheap version of the Surface tablet called the Surface C. The tablet will feature a polycarbonate casing and a Pentium II processor. Microsoft over the past months, has been working very hard modifying Windows 8 to work on these older components. Microsoft says this version of the Surface will be able to run older desktop apps.

 

The specs are

 

Pentium II 233Mhz Processor

256MB of Ram

ATI Rage LT Pro

10GB Hard Disk Drive

960×540 Touch LCD Screen

Heavily Modified Windows 8 Pro

 

The Surface C will be released sometime next year and will be starting at only $99.00.

I'd still buy one over an iPhone 5c. At least then I could play Chip's Challenge...

I bet Microsoft could get Windows 8 running on a Pentium II and only 256mb of ram!

Makes sense they would put Windows 8 on a cheap device.

God knows the color scheme should work fine on CGA displays. Sorry to all you low-class monochrome tards!
