6 Reasons For

Microsoft Tablet Computers Have Good Reviews

Microsoft is one of the better rated tablet manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and users, and Microsoft also has good reviews for its Tegra 3 processor tablet computers.

Fairly Large Display Diagonal

The Microsoft Surface RT has a fairly large display diagonal (10.6 inches) compared to most of the other tablet computers of a similar spec and age to the Surface RT. The display diagonals of similar spec tablets that came out around the same time as the Surface RT range from 7" to 11", and the average display diagonal is 9.2".

We compared all the other 10.6" tablets to this tablet and we think because of it's better review score, the Microsoft Surface RT[plb_2132110_price] is also worth considering.
