For most of us, the work from home situation has been going on longer than expected. One of the biggest bane about working from home is likely the shortage of computers for the entire family. The Missus needs it for work, and so do you. The children may also require a computer for remote learning and homework submission. But there’s only one desktop or laptop and maybe another tablet for everyone in the family. It’s a fact every modern family requires at least one computer unit for every family member due to evolving needs but isn’t that a costly affair?

Enter the Microsoft Surface gadgets, tablets that allow you to surf for pleasure as well as get intensive work done with an attachable keyboard. Convert your tablets into laptops in a matter of seconds based on your needs; be it for heavy-duty editing for the Creatives, the all-important presentation, or a zoom class.
