7 Reasons For

Microsoft Tablet Computers Have Good Reviews

Tablet computers manufactured by Microsoft are some of the better tablet computers according to average reviews from experts and users.

Fairly Large Screen Size

With a screen size of 12 inches, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 has a fairly large screen size compared to most of the other tablet computers of a similar type and age to the Surface Pro 3. Tablet computers that were released one year ago have screen sizes of between 5" and 14", and the average screen size is 9.1".

If you want a tablet computer with a larger screen size then you might also want to consider the Surface Pro 4 (12.3"), or the Surface Pro 4 (12.3") both from Microsoft.

That's over three times the display resolution of a 1280 x 800 pixels tablet, which is the most common display resolution.

There are a number of other 5MP rear camera resolution tablet computers currently available which you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the iPad Mini ($234.95), or the iPad Air ($385.36) both from Apple.

If this tablet computer rear camera resolution is too low for you then you might also want to look at the DELL Venue 11 Pro ($510.83) (8MP).
