After sitting on the sidelines for far too long watching Apple make record profits with the iPad, Microsoft has finally gotten into the tablet business.

Yesterday, Microsoft unveiled 'Surface' the new tablet that runs on the Windows operating system (or Windows RT or Windows 8). Here's the cool part: Surface comes with an ultra-thin keyboard that doubles as a protective case AND it's a hell of a lot cheaper than an iPad.

Do you think 'Surface' will become serious competition for the iPad or is this just another Zune?
