Surface Rt durability

Earlier reports had shown the durability of the Microsoft Surface tablet following reports that device was able to survive falls from the top of the cars of users. The company also tested the durability of the Microsoft Surface tablet by conducting a number of torture tests on its recently released device. In fact the Surface RT tablet was even used as a skateboard by Steven Sinofsky, the former head of Windows. CNet conducting another set of tests on the tablet to check its durability.

  1. The tablet was able to survive the first test without any problems. In the first test, the tablet was placed in inside a standard freezer for around 2.5 hours.
  2. The device also survived the second test where it was placed inside a 250-degree oven for more than an hour. The heat and length of time was enough to cook an egg placed on the display of the tablet.
  3. Although the tablet was able to survive the first two torture tests, it finally stopped working after wine was spilled on the device. After the wine was spilled on the device, the tablet’s touch screen display did not function anymore. Even after the Touch Cover keyboard was attached into the device, it still did not work.
  4. The skateboard test of Sinofsky was also attempted by CNet on the Microsoft Surface tablet. The case of the tablet cracked because of this test. The display of the device eventually cracked after the device was dropped from a height of more than six feet.

However, it should be noted that only one Surface RT tablet unit was used in all of the tests. Due to this, the MS tablet will have a bigger chance of getting damaged. It should also be taken into consideration that the device continued to function even after it was placed inside a hot oven that was able to cook an egg on its display.
