  • Conclusion: And now the grades! Microsoft Surface RT gets a 9.5 out of 10 for design, a 9 for the hardware, minus the camera and an 8.3 for the OS and UI, that feels unfinished and incomplete, compared to Windows 8 and other platforms out there.
  • Cons: crappy camera, big size, price tag is kind of big for what it offers, few apps that really appeal to the public, no GPS, no camera flash, initial bugs

  • Conclusion: The Microsoft Surface RT made mixed impression. The hardware and design are impressive. The kickstand is very practical, the magnetic grip is thought-through and works really well, and the full-size USB port is nice to have. The Nvidia Tegra processors runs smoothly in part due to the flash memory.

  • Conclusion: As much as we like the Surface's industrial design, kickstand, and Type Cover, its lack of apps holds it back against tablets with other operating systems. And compared just to other Win RT tablets, the VivoTab RT has more substantive features.
  • Pros: Premium hardware and design, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint included in price, Good battery life
  • Cons: Can't run standard Windows programs, App selection is very limited compared to other ecosystems, Expensive
