It’s no surprise that Bill Gates currently owns all Microsoft products, be they Windows Phone, Surface tablets and the brand new Windows 8 operating system, but here’s one very interesting piece of hardware that Gates is using to browse the web.

This 80-Inch Perceptive Pixel Windows 8 tablet is Gates’ first choice when it comes to a quick and easy to use way to surf the Internet, while a Surface Pro serves as backup, just in case he wishes to read the news before going to sleep.

“I just got my Surface Pro a week ago and it is very nice. I am using a Perceptive Pixel display right now - huge Windows 8 touch whiteboard. These will come down in price over time and be pervasive,” Gates explained.

We did a bit of research and we found out that Bill Gates’ Windows 8 tablet is priced at approximately $80,000 (€59,750). It can detect 100 touches of 10 users at the same time, so it’s probably a real pleasure to use one of these to browse the web.
