2 Other reasons to consider the Microsoft Surface RT

Released Over a Year Ago

Microsoft released the Surface RT over a year ago.

Four Processor Coress

Compared to the other five Tegra 3 processor tablets that have been available for more than a year that we have assessed the number of processor coress of, the number of processor coress on the Surface RT is four which is average.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 4 processor cores tablets currently available including the Asus Transformer Pad TF700T[plb_3069190_price] which has better reviews.
