Microsoft Surface 2 Stands

Up until now, Classic Exhibits has bet heavily on the iPad tablet. You could say we’ve doubled down a few times. And, we’d be lying if we told you that it hasn’t been successful. It’s been crazy (the loading dock is overflowing with orders) successful.

Now, that’s not to say that we haven’t welcomed Samsung Galaxy, ASUS, and countless other tablets. We have. But, you give the market what the market wants, and it’s been heavily skewed toward iPad tablets in trade shows, events, and retail.

We still believe the iPad will continue to dominate, but Microsoft has made impressive inroads with the Surface line. And corporate America loves Microsoft for lots of logical reasons. Heck, with a few exceptions, we are a Microsoft software-driven company. If you haven’t tried the Surface 2 Pro, then you haven’t seen the next generation of “all the bells and whistles” tablet. With an Intel processor, it runs the full version of Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.). It’s impressive.

The Surface dimensions are different from the iPad. This required us to develop a secure enclosure with Surface-specific ports. In addition, it had to work with our patent-pending Swivel Stop mechanism, which seamlessly rotates between portrait and landscape.

So, we adapted the existing designs, like the MOD-1333 and MOD-1338, to the Surface 2 tablets. Same wire management, same packaging, same graphic accessories, and most importantly, same ClassicMODUL aluminum extrusion quality. We’re still adding more renderings to the Surface line. So if you don’t see exactly what you want, please give us a call.

Whether your client is looking for something to use on the trade show floor, their next corporate event, or in the retail application, they’ll be amazed by the assortment and the quality. This already amazing solution now works for clients of all kinds, whether or not they claim to be connoisseurs of “Apple” flavored Kool-Aid or one of the other great flavors. 🙂

Hope you all are well. Have a great weekend with your families.

And a very special Happy Mother’s Day to the Moms out there! I hope your kids take good care of you on Sunday.


p.s. Finally, Mother’s Day would not be Mother’s Day without a Special Mother’s Day Message from Mr. T.
