It was reported a couple of months ago that Microsoft is developing a cheaper lineup of Surface tablets to take on the iPad. Even though they are expected to cost around $400, they’re going to offer the full Windows 10 experience. A new report claims that the cheaper Surface tablets will feature less powerful Intel chips, they’ll have Pentium processors instead of the Core i5 and Core i7 chips offered […]

It’s not uncommon for companies to come out with tools that enable their customers to easily switch over from a rival’s products to their competing option.
