With you surface you can hook up a mouse, ipad, ipod, iphone, game controller, usb fan, usb fridge, an external hard drive, an external disk drive and a lumia or nexus. All at the same time. Try doing that with an ipad

"Main disadvantages:
Windows RT works with Windows Store apps only"

Are you kidding me? Why does apple appstore and android play store work on each others OS?

> In reply to NK @ 2012-11-19 20:28 from dMAW - click to readMarket share doesn't really tell you about how good something is, just how popular and likely to succeed it is. The new iPhone may be the worst Apple has ever released, but people will still buy it because they're creatures of habit. Youtube videos are often misleading in info and visuals, benchmarks are much more accurate and tell you a lot more (So long as you find the right websites, so many of them are skewed one way or the other). In terms of innovation, Windows 8 and RT are the most since iOS 1 and, if I have my iOS versions right, 4 (The one that introduced multitasking).

I'm not saying the Surface is going to do well. It is probably going to undersell and get killed off. But, that doesn't change the fact that it is currently the best, most innovative tablet available. I'm glad to have one and plan to keep it.

On top of that my hope screen kept resetting every few weeks and my app icons moved themselves around at random times. My phone would restart randomly, shut off randomly and apps crashed far too frequently

2. Resolution isn't everything, Surface's display has deeper colour and runs a lot smoother.
3. This is a matter of preference, I'm happy someone finally made a tablet I can run video on without black bars.
4. Yes, this is true and somewhere the Surface falls down for most people.
5. Having a good camera on a tablet is a joke and promotes idiots using it like they would a phone camera or camera in public resulting in a lot of pissed off people who can't see beyond it at a gig or football match
6. Could you please link me to the benchmark tests? Having trouble finding them
