5 Reasons For

Microsoft Has Good Tablet Computer Reviews

Microsoft has good average reviews for its i5-3317U processor tablet computers as well as across its entire tablet computer range compared to other manufacturers.

Very Large Internal Storage Capacity

At 256 gigabytes, the Surface Pro has a very large internal storage capacity compared to most of the other i5-3317U processor tablet computers that were launched more than two years ago. Across all the i5-3317U processor tablet computers that have been around for a similar time to the Surface Pro the internal storage capacity range from 64GB to 260GB, and the average internal storage capacity is 110GB.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

The Surface Pro is one of the narrower i5-3317U processor tablet computers that came out around the same time as the Surface Pro (only 274.6 millimeters) amongst comparable spec tablets of this age. The average width of i5-3317U processor tablet computers that were released more than two years ago is 290mm, and the widths range from 270mm to 310mm.

Chart Edit

4 Bluetooth Version

This tablet computer supports a 4.0 LE Bluetooth version, which is the most commonly supported Bluetooth version on comparable spec tablets that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Very Thin

The thicknesses of i5-3317U processor tablet computers that have been available for more than two years range from 13mm to 200mm, and the average thickness is 150mm. At only 13.5 millimeters, the Surface Pro has a fairly thin thickness compared to most of the other i5-3317U processor tablet computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Surface Pro.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Not 3G Compatible

The Microsoft Surface Pro is not 3G compatible. Most of the other i5-3317U processor tablet computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Surface Pro are also not 3G compatible.

Tablet computers which are 3G compatible that might be worth considering include the Microsoft Surface[plb_2132204_price] which also has a higher rating.

Not 4G Compatible

Like most of the other tablet computers of a comparable age and type to the Surface Pro, the Surface Pro is not 4G compatible.

Chart Edit

The smallest screen size of i5-3317U processor tablet computers that have been around for a similar time to the Surface Pro is 10" and the largest is 12".

We compared all the other 10.6" tablets to this tablet and we think the Microsoft Surface[plb_2132204_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
