Released Over Three Years Ago

Microsoft released the Surface RT over three years ago.

Four Processor Coress

The Surface RT has four processor coress which is average compared to the other 55 tablets of this age and type that we have assessed the number of processor coress of.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 4 processor cores tablets currently available including the Google Nexus 7[plb_1911534_price] which has better reviews.

Average Processor Frequency

At 1.3 gigahertz, the Surface RT has a relatively standard processor frequency compared to most of the other tablet computers of this age and type.

We compared this tablet to all the other 1.3GHz processor clock speed tablets and we think because of it's better review score, the Toshiba AT300SE-101[plb_1527991_price] is also worth considering.

If this Microsoft tablet processor frequency is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the Google Nexus 7[plb_1876701_price] (1.4GHz), or the Microsoft Surface RT[plb_2132077_price] (1.4GHz).

Average Internal Storage Capacity

The Surface RT has a relatively typical internal storage capacity (32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other Tegra 3 processor tablet computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Surface RT.

If you want a larger internal storage capacity then you might want to consider the Asus Transformer Pad TF700[plb_2092526_price] (64GB) which also has a higher rating.
