5 Reasons For
Microsoft Tegra 3 processor tablet computers have good reviews on average and across all tablets Microsoft is one of the better rated manufacturers.
Just Released Four Months Ago
As one of the newer tablets, this tablet computer is likely to have more advanced features.
Flash Storage Medium
This tablet computer supports a Flash storage medium, which is typical of many new tablet computers.
Quite Large Screen Size
Comparable spec tablets that came out in the last year have screen sizes of between 4.7" and 14", and the average screen size is 9.1". With a screen size of 10.6 inches, the Microsoft Surface RT has one of the larger screen sizes amongst similar spec tablet computers of this age.
If you want a tablet computer with a larger screen size then you might want to consider the DELL 5130[plb_3584853_price] (10.8") which also has a higher rating.
4 Bluetooth Version
This tablet computer supports a 4 Bluetooth version, which is typical of many latest similar spec tablet computers.
7 Reasons Against
Not 4G Compatible
Most tablet computers that are a similar age to the Surface RT are not 4G compatible. The Surface RT is no exception to this as it too is not 4G compatible.
Not 3G Compatible
The Surface RT is not 3G compatible, although keep in mind that most of the other tablet computers that have been on the market for the last year are also not 3G compatible.
Only 1280 X 720 Pixels Rear Camera Resolution
The biggest rear camera resolution of the Surface RT is 1280 x 720 pixels. That's 56% less rear camera resolution than the most frequently found rear camera resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
A 1280 x 720 pixels rear camera resolution is actually the worst rear camera resolution amongst all latest tablets.
A 3264 x 2448 pixels rear camera resolution is the best rear camera resolution across similar types of tablet computer.
Very Small Processor Cache
The average processor cache of tablets that came out around the same time as the Surface RT is 2.3MB, and the processor caches range from 1MB to 4MB. The Surface RT has a fairly small processor cache (only 1 megabyte) compared to most of the other recently released similar spec tablets.
+4 More reasons against
Only Microsoft Surface Cover Docking Connector Type
The docking connector type of this tablet is Microsoft Surface Cover, which is the most frequently found docking connector type on tablets that were released in the last year.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
The maximum internal memory of comparable spec tablets that are a similar age to the Surface RT range from 2GB to 16GB. At only 2 gigabytes, the Surface RT has a fairly small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other recently released tablet computers.
The average weight of new tablets is 530g. With a weight of 680 grams, the Microsoft Surface RT is fairly heavy compared to most of the other tablets that are a comparable age to the Surface RT.
2 Other reasons to consider the Microsoft Surface RT
Four Processor Cores
The Surface RT has four processor cores which is average compared to the other 79 new tablet computers that we have assessed the number of processor cores of.
If this Microsoft tablet computer has too few processor cores then you might also want to look at the Acer B1-830[plb_3826369_price] (8 processor cores), or the Hannspree 133 Titan 2[plb_3351380_price] (8 processor cores).
Average Internal Storage Capacity
The Surface RT has a pretty average internal storage capacity (32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other tablet computers that were released in the last year.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 32GB internal storage capacity tablet computers currently available including the Apple New iPad[plb_3883773_price], or the Asus Transformer Pad TF701T[plb_3017099_price] which has better reviews.
Tablets with a larger internal storage capacity that might be worth considering include the Apple iPad 64GB Wi-Fi[plb_3875525_price] (64GB and higher rated), or the DELL 5130[plb_3584853_price] (64GB and higher rated).
