7 Reasons For

Microsoft Has Good Tablet Reviews

Based on 2,965 expert and user reviews, Microsoft has good ratings for its tablets. Microsoft also has good ratings specifically for its Tegra 3 processor tablet computers compared to other brands.

Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed

Across all the tablet computers that came out around the same time as the Surface the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 1.7GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 1.3GHz.

Four Processor Cores

The number of processor cores on the Surface is four. That's average compared to the other 59 comparable spec tablet computers that have been available for more than two years that we have assessed the number of processor cores of.
