Always first with the latest technology, John Lewis is delighted to announce that it will be the first high street retailer in the UK to offer the Microsoft Surface from the 14 December 2012* and with a two-year guarantee included at no extra cost.
Matt Leeser, head of buying for communication technology at John Lewis says, “Demand for Windows 8 computers has been phenomenal with touch screen models leading the way. We are committed to offering customers the very best tablet range available and believe that the innovative Microsoft Surface is a brilliant addition to our assortment.”
The Microsoft Surface combines the functionality of a laptop with the portability of a tablet.

The included Office Home & Student 2013 RT software, full-size USB port and a microSD card slot make the Surface perfect for work and a host of Windows apps, including SkyDrive cloud connectivity, HD video, Xbox Music and games make it ideal for play.
