The interface stays the same, but you access specific functions differently. For example, if you want to open up the main functions menu on a tablet, you slide your finger in from the side. If you’re using a mouse and keyboard, you aim for the bottom corner. Microsoft maintains the interface is natural and friendly on both kinds of machines, though we found the mouse-and-keyboard setup somewhat counter intuitive.
On the tablet side, it’s important to note that in the case of a Windows 8 device, your tablet is your PC. Although you’re certainly allowed to own as many devices as you want, there isn’t a need to buy both if you want both experiences. This is one of the main points of departure from the Apple experience, which has different operating systems for both the iPad and Mac computers. On the Windows side, they’ll be one in the same.
