Microsoft Surface RT vs Apple Ipad first impressions

14 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Design It's hard to compare the design of the Microsoft Surface and latest Apple Ipad, and we'd be lying if we said that the two devices don't look almost identical. We must say however, that although the Surface has clearly taken design cues from the Apple-branded tablet, it's boxy metal trimmed edges look pretty robust and add a touch of class to the Microsoft tablet.

Microsoft Surface RT

31 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Tablet computers have been around for a very long time now. And so has Windows. But combining the two traditionally hasn’t resulted in a very good product. Enter the Microsoft Surface RT tablet. It’s the culmination of Microsoft’s most recent efforts to “reimagine” Windows and mobile computing in general.

Microsoft Surface RT

23 April 2013
  • Conclusion: It might surprise some readers, but overall we found Microsoft's Surface RT to be an impressive tablet that is worth considering, not least for the preloaded Microsoft Office suite of productivity applications. However the Surface RT tablet does have drawbacks, including a shortage of "Metro style" apps available for Windows RT and the fact that it won't run existing Windows PC software applications.
  • Pros: Lightweight, sturdy construction, preloaded Microsoft Office 2013 applications suite.
  • Cons: Few "Metro style" apps available, no 3G connectivity., No support for existing Windows PC applications.

Microsoft Surface

16 November 2012
  • Summary: Microsoft's Surface is for people who really need Office in their life -- the combination of kickstand and Touch Cover works well, although Office hasn't been terribly well adapted for a touchscreen. If you don't need Office, you can get higher-performance, less expensive Android tablets.
  • Pros: Pretty Metro interface; Useful keyboard cover; Office comes pre-installed; Great build quality; Expandable storage.
  • Cons: Not cheap; Desktop mode is confusing and clunky; Lower-resolution screen than competitors; Office doesn't work brilliantly with touch.

Microsoft Surface RT review

Pocket Lint
7 November 2012
  • Excerpt: In many ways, Microsoft is typical of a massive company. It's visibly slow to react to things, and it takes a very long time for the firm to manoeuvre. But 2012 is looking like the year it finally gets its ducks in a row. Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and a solid amount of unification across computers, phones and the Xbox 360, have meant that the company is currently looking like it knows where it's going for the first time in a good few years.
  • Pros: Solid build quality, Windows RT is great on tablets, this is the closest a tablet comes to a laptop experience, great battery life, screen is brilliant, largely crash-free
  • Cons: Keyboards are expensive, kickstand angle isn't perfect or adjustable, camera is unforgivably bad, Microsoft app store still lacking

PC Advisor
12 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Smartphone and tablet users tend to fall into two categories: those who are diehard Apple fans and seemingly willing to pay any price for its fashionable hardware, and those who prefer the semi-open approach of Google's Android operating system and the less costly hardware on which it runs. Now there's a third category, which champions Windows RT.

Microsoft Surface RT

4 February 2014
  • Conclusion: De Microsoft Surface RT is een Windows RT-tablet zoals deze hoort te zijn. Het is voor het product jammer dat er op het moment nog weinig beschikbare software is. Op termijn moet daar wat Microsoft betreft verandering in komen en persoonlijk heb ik daar ook wel vertrouwen in, het heeft tijd nodig. Dat is echter wel een reden om Windows RT op het moment nog links te laten liggen, hoe goed de Surface RT ook is. Microsoft heeft zichzelf echt overtroffen met de Touch Cover.
  • Pros: Ademt innovatie;, Mooi, minimalistisch ontwerp;, Afwerking vrijwel perfect;, Uitklapbare standaard;, Touch Cover is een geweldige toevoeging;
  • Cons: Windows RT biedt nog weinig;, Prestaties;, Schermresolutie;, Blijft weinig schijfruimte over;
