Little confused about Surface RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,
    I am evaluating to buy a multi-touchscreen desk. I have some questions, please can you answer me ?

    - is Surface (also) a normal PC ? I mean, can I start it and use it without any application written specifically for Surface ? Can I browse web, install other software and so on ?
    - is it possible to connect Surface to a projector ?

    Thanks for help :)

  • Yes, and yes.  :)

    Surface v1 units ship with the Vista Business SKU I believe, and you'll have full access to the Windows shell environment when logged in as an administrator.

    There is a VGA port where you can connect an external display.
