> In reply to pmh2009 @ 2014-01-02 15:21 from GMv6 - click to read1. True. but its a tablet not a pc. using windows store apps is not so hard.
2.I dont known about bloomberg but not all apps are lame.
3.true. its a TABLET. and in exchange of pc part you get lot of battery life.
4. seriously? you are taking pics with your tablet. 5. Every new thing needs getting used to. I have no problem using touch. Still without touch pad u r missing lot. email writing or using ms office on toch screen..... that keyboard is really good.
6. you can change font size easily. but i prefer smallest font. cuz my eyes are in good condition.
7. You can still play games, watch videos, music and do your work on microsoft office. If you are looking for lte support than this tab is not for you.
8.no apps and no games. Heard that many times. There are most apps and most app alternatives. And the stores size is growing at incredible speed.


I was nexus 7 2013 user. I used my tablet for downloading videos, music and pdfs. Heavy internet browsing. Watching videos and reading. Playing heavy games like asphalt 8 and gta san andreas (my favourite games). RT is missing on most games but other than that, its better at everything else.

Surface rt's weight and ppi are bad. But in exchange for IE 10 with much faster flash player and ms office. Its great for me. bye bye nexus.

It is a complete hopeless tab!!! Why???
1. With the exception of MS apps NO other apps can be installed. Which means for even YouTube you need to be on the IE!!!
2. MS apps are so lame, i.e... Bloomberg 5 stars; when u install it all there is just small boxes with pics and the news. No proper news, reference, apps just dumb games... For that you just get a normal tab no need for a Win 8.1 PC tab....
3. The PC part is also hopeless as you cannot install normal PC software only on the Pro Tab is it possible.
4. The camera is 1.2 MP!!!
5. If you use the PC part then you need get the keyboard attached because the TOUCH is really useless; due to the fact that everything is really really small.
6. Fonts are so small that you will need reading glasses.
7. No SIM! so that means without the WiFi you are completely dead... no other options for connectivity!!!
8. Complete restriction regarding outside apps... with Android u can download Skydrive, Google Drive, Yahoo, everything but MS is real bummer... no apps but theirs only!!! It is completely dead... in about 5 years they will become dinosaurs!!!
The future being mobiles & tablets...
