The original Microsoft Surface may not have the fastest processor or the best screen of any tablet on the market, and its Windows RT software may not be as versatile as Windows 8.1. But at $349, it is a relatively inexpensive way to get your hands on a fully licensed copy of Microsoft Office 2013 and a 10 inch tablet that can run it (and which you can also use to play games, surf the web, and watch videos).
It’s even cheaper if you’re cool with buying refurbished products. Microsoft is selling refurbished models for $254.
