25 most iconic computers ever
Microsoft Surface (2008)
Apple may have made multitouch mainstream but Microsoft Surface has brought it into the commercial world: a 30-inch multitouch display that looks like a table, it lets its user (or users) manipulate on-screen objects through a variety of gestures. It can respond to up to 52 touches simultaneously, and its large size makes it ideal for use in shops, restaurants and museums. Not so much for the home, mind you: a Surface unit will set you back a cool $10,000.
