Rated 3 out of5 by fromGreat for entertainmentI've had this about a year now, and I find the pros are good. If your gaming, watching videos, doing Office related work, browsing online, Wi-Fi connections, east tiles on main area, then it is for you. Cons are the camera is grainy and slow, horrible Skype ability, Windows Store only apps, and no Firefox, or other applications you should be allowed can't be installed in your desktop area, and the volume is way too soft.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromGreat Productivity TabletEver imagine a tablet with good gaming performance and easy for work/school? Well, this is what you would want. A 10.6" laptop/tablet.The Surface RT consists of a perfect screen size and a magnetically detachable touch keyboard cover. Some key specs are a NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, an 8-hour battery life, 2GB RAM, 32/64GB. a mini HDMI port, a USB 2.0 port, a hidden MicroSD card port front and rear Microsoft LifeCams, a magnetic keyboard cover port, an earphone jack a motion sensor and a built in microphone. Another great feature is a 5-finger touch screen. By the way the magnetic keyboard is so strong that the tablet won't fall even if you hold it by the cover upside down. If you were to compare an iPad to a Surface RT, the main differences are that you can't access Adobe Flash stuff with an iPad. Wait, picture it like this, what are the things you can't do with an iPad that you can do with and Windows PC? Well, a Surface is like the Windows PC and the features you can't use with the Windows PC compared to the iPad. But, there’s more! There’s a built in kickstand, free music from Xbox Music, very clear and LOUD speakers, Microsoft Office 2013 pre-installed, OneDrive(formerly SkyDrive), A Mail App to quickly switch between emails if you have more than one, Apps on the Start(Apps) Screen are organized into different sizes, Live Tile feature on apps where the tile gives you updates from the app, touch gestures to do actions such as closing an app, and a whole lot more.But of course, there are a few cons. There are only three cons. But really big flaws which costs one full star. The first one is that apps crash pretty easily. Whenever I tap on the screen when an app is loading, apparently, it does to much processing and the app closes and keeps on crashing when you open it again. The only way to open an app properly again is to restart or sign out. Just to clarify, The Surface RT runs the Windows RT OS which is pretty much a demo version of Windows 8/8.1. So it’s pretty much a touch-screen netbook. A PC. But the only difference between Win RT and 8 is that you can’t download any desktop software. So say goodbye to Chrome, Firefox and any other softwares from the internet(but let me tell you, Internet Explorer 11 extra convenient when using touch screen with enlarged icons.). The only apps you can download are from the Windows Store, which is WAY behind Apple’s App Store and Google Play because it lacks the most of the popular apps. Microsoft can improve by encouraging game companies to create games for the Windows Store.The Surface RT is overall, a great tablet with minor problems that can be easily fixed. If a person is looking for a entertainment/minor buisness suitable tablet, I would highly recommend this product. But for a hardcore businessman, I would recommend the Surface Pro, which has an Intel Core i5 which solves the app crashing issue,and a full version of Windows 8. Generally, I think the Surface RT is worth it’s price.

Rated 2 out of5 by fromA solid "Netflix" Machine.I bought this in order to use for school, and while it lasted, it was great - powerpoint, words, excel. However, after less than 6 months of usage you notice the "fall" or breakdown of this machine: power button doesn't work well; I need to reset the tablet every 2nd day or so. It's also very slow!If you are looking for a cheap netflix machine, and maybe a bit of school work, It can work.
