8 Reasons For

Microsoft Tablets Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Microsoft tablets and also specifically for Microsoft Tegra 3 processor tablets and found that in both cases Microsoft had good ratings compared to other brands.

Very Large Display Diagonal

With a display diagonal of 10.6 inches, the Microsoft Surface RT has one of the largest display diagonals amongst Tegra 3 processor tablets of this age. The display diagonals of tablet computers of this spec and age range from 7" to 11".

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

Fairly Large Internal Storage Capacity

The Surface RT has a quite large internal storage capacity (64 gigabytes) compared to most of the other comparable spec tablets that have been around for around the same time as the Surface RT. Across all the Tegra 3 processor tablets that were released more than two years ago the internal storage capacitys range from 8GB to 64GB.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 64GB internal storage capacity tablet computers currently available including the Microsoft Surface RT which has better reviews.

4 Bluetooth Version

The Microsoft Surface RT supports a 4 bluetooth version which is newer than the 3 bluetooth version supported by most tablets of a comparable age and spec to it.

A 4 bluetooth version is actually the best supported Bluetooth version across all tablet computers of this age and type.

A 3 bluetooth version is the worst supported Bluetooth version across comparable types of tablet.

Chart Edit

Across all the tablet computers that are a similar age to the Surface RT the depths range from 0.45mm to 190mm, and the average depth is 74mm.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Not 3G

The Surface RT is not 4G. Most of the other Tegra 3 processor tablets that have been around for more than two years are also not 4G.

Chart Edit

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 a 1920 x 1080 pixels tablet computer, which is the most frequently found rear camera resolution. Across all tablet computers of this age and spec the best rear camera resolution is 3288 x 2472 pixels and the worst is 640 x 480 pixels.

3 Other reasons to consider the Microsoft Surface RT

Released Over Three Years Ago

Microsoft released the Surface RT over three years ago.

Four Processor Coress

The Surface RT has four processor coress. That's average compared to the other 57 comparable spec tablet computers that have been around for more than two years that we have assessed the number of processor coress of.

Chart Edit

Average Processor Frequency

At 1.3 gigahertz, the Surface RT has a fairly average processor frequency compared to most of the other Tegra 3 processor tablets that are a comparable age to the Surface RT.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 1.3GHz processor clock speed tablet computers currently available including the Toshiba AT300SE-101 which has better reviews.

If you want a tablet computer with a faster processor frequency then you might want to look at the Surface (1.4GHz), or the Surface RT (1.4GHz) both from Microsoft or the Google Nexus 7 (£180.65) (1.4GHz).
