    They may be Microsoft branded but I doubt they are actually made in house by Microsoft. I would think they would be farmed out to somebody that already makes similar devices. If you have a link to prove me wrong please share.

    I believe they are building them in-house. I remember reading recently they are or were building a site JUST for the Surface. Not sure if it's for the manufacturing or design. But I think it was both. Also, they had their Surface building under heavy security, as obviously no one knew a peep about Microsoft making tablet PCs.

    Recently, some buildings at Redmond were put under increased security, I think it was the building where the Xbox division is at, and Surface as well, as a rumor has it that they are building an Xbox gaming tablet.

    They've said the Surface has about 200 custom designed parts, so I don't know if it's easily contracted out for an external company to build. Actually, I wonder what country they're built in now...
