All of you already know or heard about Microsoft trying to compete with Apple and Samsung by releasing their own tablet right?!
Each company should work on the most powerful thing it has that parts it from the others. Apple for example were sure to include iTunes in all their iOS products as its been their strongest thing in the market and nobody else was able to do it as good!
Microsoft in the other hand have searched for what they do have and no other company did it as good .. of course it wasn’t their Windows OS since other manufacturers have already tried to make tablets running Windows OS and they failed miserably to deliver a good user experience.
So .. i think Microsoft have learned from those mistakes. And that’s what drives them to come up with the Microsoft Surface RT!
Now .. Is this device worth buying?!
The powerful thing that Microsoft have among other companies is the Microsoft Office i think!
and although they released a version for Mac OS, they didn’t do the same for iOS devices.
Other companies have released their own Office like apps to work on iOS and android devices but they were still not a real Microsoft Office although you still can view Office files on them!
Now .. To start with .. i have bought the Microsoft Surface RT a while back .. and honestly .. i was hating it before even trying it as being a Mac user and having the thought that Microsoft Windows … Sucks!!
In the beginning i thought as any new device you might buy you will find yourself using it more than you other devices .. so i found myself using it more than my iPad mini and i thought its only the honeymoon period that you spend with any new device you buy!
But after i while .. i started loving the Surface .. and i think .. Microsoft has finally nailed it with this device!!
You should know the following though .. if you are into games and all .. this device is not for you .. yet! .. as iOS and android games are more and better than the ones in Microsoft Store!
If you are using your tablet for browsing mostly .. then you may like this one!
The device has two browsers .. yes .. you heard it right .. two browsers! .. a light one and a full IE one!
You should get the Touch Cover as it is a real handy accessory that you will find your self using more often than the touch screen.
Recently .. Microsoft has released the Pro version of the Microsoft Surface which runs a full windows 8!
should you get that one?! .. i’d say no .. if you want a Surface then the RT is the one you should get .. why?!! .. here is my opinion!
Why would you want to get the Pro?!! .. it is running a full windows 8 .. which means it is almost a laptop .. but .. it is not!!
you might buy a laptop with almost the same price or even cheaper! .. so get a laptop better right?!
the full windows will allow you to install any windows app .. but .. do you really want to install regular windows apps on it?! .. it is a tablet .. which means it should mainly run on batteries .. how processor consuming those apps you want to install are?!!
Are those apps designed to work perfectly on touch screens?!! .. you will not use them using the touch screen and you will use the keyboard and mouse instead?!! .. then .. get a laptop!!
how many windows apps in the internet have embedded malware or viruses?! .. so it is risky to install them on your Surface right?! .. but the same applies to the laptop you would say! .. ok .. but the laptop have more storage that Surface .. in both you need to install a decent anti-virus .. and you need it to be up to date .. so how much memory it will take?! .. get a laptop!
I think .. in my own opinion that Microsoft will stop selling the Surface Pro soon .. although it is already getting out of stock in different places .. but people will realize that with this specific device .. Microsoft hasn’t learned from the other manufacturers mistakes who has introduces tablets running windows before iPads comes in! .. and don’t tell me that windows 8 is designed to be working on both touch and regular screens! .. the idea is not on the OS itself .. its in the third party apps that makes the difference .. and i don’t think developers will make apps to run only for windows 8 while there is a huge number of PCs out there running windows 7 and XP!
So .. in short .. i think developers will focus on the RT more than the Pro version!
