5 Reasons For

Microsoft Has Good Reviews for Its Tablets

On average Microsoft Tegra 3 processor tablets have good ratings as do all tablets manufactured by Microsoft.

Flash Storage Media

This tablet supports a Flash storage media, which is the most commonly supported storage media on similar spec tablet computers that have been available for the last year.

Chart Edit

Just Released Six Months Ago

This tablet is one of the latest tablets to be released. As such it is likely to use better technology than some of the older tablets.

Quite Large Display Diagonal

The smallest display diagonal of tablet computers that were released around the same time as the Surface RT is 4.7", the largest is 14", and the average display diagonal is 9.1". The Surface RT has one of the larger display diagonals (10.6 inches) amongst similar spec tablets of this age.

Chart Edit

4 Bluetooth Version

This tablet supports a 4 bluetooth version, which is typical of many similar spec tablet computers that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Not 4G

The Surface RT is not 4G, although keep in mind that most of the other tablet computers that are a comparable age to the Surface RT are also not 4G.

Tablet computers which are 4G that might be worth considering include the 128GB Wi-Fi + Cellular (£599.00), or the New iPad (£480.00) both from Apple which also has a higher rating.

Not 3G

The Surface RT is not 3G, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other new comparable spec tablet computers are also not 3G.

Tablets which are 3G that might also be worth considering include the 128GB Wi-Fi + Cellular (£599.00), or the New iPad (£480.00) both from Apple which also has a higher rating.

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 common 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 similar spec tablets that have been available for around the same time as the Surface RT.

The best rear camera resolution across similar types of tablet computer is 3264 x 2448 pixels.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory

New tablet computers have maximum internal memorys of between 2GB and 16GB. The maximum internal memory of the Microsoft Surface RT of only 2 gigabytes is one of the smallest amongst tablet computers that came out around the same time as the Surface RT.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The weights of tablets that have been around for around the same time as the Surface RT range from 240g to 1.7kg. With a weight of 680 grams, the Surface RT is fairly heavy compared to most of the other comparable spec tablet computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Surface RT.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the Microsoft Surface RT

Four Processor Coress

Compared to the other 81 similar spec tablets that are a comparable age to the Surface RT that we have assessed the number of processor coress of, the number of processor coress on the Surface RT is four which is average.

We compared all the other 4 processor cores tablet computers to this tablet and we think the Tesco hudl2 (£449.99) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Internal Storage Capacity

The Microsoft Surface RT has a relatively typical internal storage capacity (32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other tablets that have been available for the last year.

Other 32GB internal storage capacity tablets currently available which you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Apple New iPad (£480.00).

Tablets with a larger internal storage capacity that might also be worth considering include the 128GB Wi-Fi + Cellular (£599.00) (128GB), or the Air (£469.00) (128GB) both from Apple which is also higher rated.
