Oprah Endorses Microsoft's Surface RT Tablet

PolygamousRanchKid (1290638) writes "Although 69 percent of the nearly 1,200 adults surveyed in a recent Associated Press poll say they have no interest in buying Microsoft's Surface RT tablet, that might not matter as much as the one person who is now decidedly interested in purchasing the Microsoft device: Oprah.

And while it's unlikely that Oprah wrote the copy herself, here's what she allegedly has to say about Microsoft's brand-new device:

"The Surface, Microsoft's first tablet, feels like a Mercedes-Benz to me, people! The full-size keyboard built right into the cover makes work easy, the very smart kickstand makes watching a movie or Skyping a friend a delight, the less than a pound-and-a-half weight makes a great alternative to a laptop, and the many other features make it fun for work and play. Now, that's a wowser!"

Will the big endorsement help Microsoft push more of its initial tablets into consumers' hands? It's unclear. To the company's credit, however, there are very few other tech-themed items on Oprah's must-have list. In fact, Microsoft's tablet is the only true computer-themed object on the list – unless a Dyson bladeless Pedestal fan can run Linux."
