7 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average Microsoft Tegra 3 processor tablet computers have good reviews as do all tablets manufactured by Microsoft.

Quite Large Screen Size

Across all the similar spec tablets that have been around for more than two years the screen sizes range from 7" to 11", and the average screen size is 9.3". With a screen size of 10.6 inches, the Microsoft Surface has one of the larger screen sizes amongst Tegra 3 processor tablet computers of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 10.6" tablet computers currently available including cheaper tablet computers such as the Surface[pl_1498625_price], or the Surface RT[pl_1586558_price] both from Microsoft.
