Excerpt: Microsoft Surface RT was released late in 2012 and was the poster boy for Windows RT, the version of Windows 8 designed for ARM-powered systems. This is a cut-down version of the full Windows 8 operating system.
Excerpt: I got this through a client of mine, for exploring the Ecosystem for application development. The OS looks clean, But the lack of applications, lack of phone features, SIM support makes this difficult to use on the move.
Summary: My wife needed something that was portable and had the capability of loading and creating power-points to study with from school. The Microsoft package loaded on it was a plus. The screen is beautiful and great for movies, especially during flights. It is very light and portable. Great to do work on and the USB port comes in handy. She has used it for many projects for school as well.
Summary: I tried the Samsung Note and the Surface is easier to set up and use. It has the Office program on it which I am used to using. It is also easy to keep in touch with family in friends on Facebook and e-mail. I use it to read books and to streamline movies and videos. It is much more convenient than a laptop when traveling.
Pros: Easy to set up, keep in touch with friends and relatives
Summary: Good looking, perfect screen size for viewing, operating system is easly to use and navigate. Keyboard is ok that comes with it but there are third party add-on that make it better. I like the USB port and its very handy for add-on to. Best of all it doesn't break the bank with it purchase price.
Summary: This was an excellent replacement for an Ipad. It has been a great decision and easy to use. My wife uses it mainly for email, internet and working from home. It has made her life easier with the Office programs.
Summary: I am working on an advanced degree and I needed something that gave me flexibility. I really liked this product because of the key board attachment and it comes in handy when I am working on a paper for school or other basic Microsoft Office products. It really helps to have both a keyboard and the touchscreen. I will often use both as I am typing. The USB port comes in handy because when I get home I simply plug into my laptop and continue working on my stuff.
