As evidenced by previous posts I have made, I have also taken the time to try out the Microsoft Surface RT. I also own other iPads, including a full sized iPad 2, and my main daily driver now, an iPad Mini + 4G LTE on Sprint. At first, I loved it, I had the Touch Cover, and free Microsoft Office was very nice. Despite the lack of apps, Windows RT was not a bad OS at all, having the full Internet Explorer on a device was really nice, and definitely made up for the lack of applications. The build quality of the Surface was very comparable to Apple's build quality. All metal, and I did really dig the kickstand and Touch Cover. Now on to the bad and what caused me to return the device: -The thing was just too dang wide to use comfortably. I am able to use the full size iPad 2 with no issues, but the Surface and it's 16:9 screen was just too awkward to hold in the hand to use "as a tablet." -The battery didn't last as long, and the lack of built in 4G was a deal breaker. Yes I realize there is now a 4G model Surface 2, but I had the original RT which I got at a deal which included the Touch Cover in black. -Heavy Heavy Heavy. While I did really like the Surface, those unfortunately were deal breakers, and I had to return the device. I am now back to my iPad mini, and I do enjoy it very much.
