Check out Microsoft's new Windows tablet and it is not the Surface Mini

Microsoft RM windows tablet

Barcelona won the Spanish football league not so long ago and Microsoft decided to launch a Windows tablet for their arch-rivals instead, Real Madrid.

The tablet, which is neither a Surface 3 or a Surface Pro 3, can be customised with a number of designs and it even comes with a detachable physical keyboard, one which has some travel.

The tablet costs a cool 199 Euros (about £144, $221, AU$285) with an extra 25% premium to be paid if you want to have your name engraved on it. That's actually not a bad deal given what you end up with.

There's a quad-core Atom processor, the Z3735F, which also powered the Linx 7, there's 2GB of RAM 32GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, micro USB and micro HDMI, Windows 8.1 (upgradable to Windows 10), a pair of cameras, Bluetooth 4.0 and an 8.9-inch full HD IPS OGS touch screen display.

Fairly close to what the Surface 3 provides but without the price tag. You also get a year's worth of Office 365 with 1TB of online OneDrive storage and an exclusive Real Madrid app.
