The device runs Windows RT which is a part of Windows 8 and has a decent array of specifications making it one of the best tablets in the market.

RT ATIV comes with a 10.1 inch LCD displaying a fine High Definition resolution of 1366 x 768. It is a very slim device at just 8.9 mm of thickness and weights just about half a kg at 570 grams.
