8 Reasons For

Microsoft Tablet Computers Have Good Reviews

Tegra 3 processor tablets manufactured by Microsoft have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all tablets (not just Tegra 3 processor tablets) and found that Microsoft also has good ratings across its entire range.

Very Large Display Diagonal

When compared to other Tegra 3 processor tablets that have been available for more than two years, the Surface RT's display diagonal of 10.6 inches is one of the largest. The smallest display diagonal of tablets that were released around the same time as the Surface RT is 7", the largest is 11", and the average display diagonal is 9.2".

Chart Edit

Quite Large Internal Storage Capacity

Across all the tablet computers of a comparable age and spec to the Surface RT the internal storage capacitys range from 8GB to 64GB, and the average internal storage capacity is 32GB. With an internal storage capacity of 64 gigabytes, the Microsoft Surface RT has a quite large internal storage capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec tablet computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Surface RT.

Chart Edit

Very Long Battery Life (max)

When compared to other tablets of a comparable type and age to the Surface RT that we have assessed, the Surface RT's battery life (max) of 360 hours is one of the longest. The average battery life (max) of Tegra 3 processor tablets that came out around the same time as the Surface RT is 17h, and the battery life (max)s range from 5h to 360h.

Chart Edit

4 Bluetooth Version

The Microsoft Surface RT supports a 4 bluetooth version which is newer than the 3 bluetooth version supported by most Tegra 3 processor tablets that are a similar age to it.

This tablet computer's Bluetooth version (4) is actually the best supported Bluetooth version across all Tegra 3 processor tablets that have been around for a comparable time to the Surface RT.

The worst supported Bluetooth version across comparable types of tablet computer is 3.

Quite Large Internal Memory

The internal memorys of similar spec tablet computers that came out more than two years ago range from 1GB to 2GB, and the average internal memory is 1.3GB. The Microsoft Surface RT has one of the larger internal memorys (2 gigabytes) amongst tablets of this age.

Chart Edit

1366 X 768 Pixels Display Resolution

The biggest display resolution of the Microsoft Surface RT is 1366 x 768 pixels. That's 2% more display resolution than a 1280 x 800 pixels tablet computer, which is the most common display resolution. The best display resolution of all tablet computers of a comparable spec and age to the Surface RT is 1920 x 1200 pixels and the worst is 1280 x 800 pixels.

Chart Edit

Very Thin

The thinnest depth of tablet computers that came out more than two years ago is 0.45mm and the thickest is 190mm. The Microsoft Surface RT has a quite thin depth (only 9.4 millimeters) compared to most of the other tablets that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Not 3G

The Microsoft Surface RT is not 3G. Most of the other tablet computers of a similar age and type to the Surface RT are also not 3G.

Tablet computers which are 3G that might also be worth considering include the Asus Google Nexus 7[plb_1488975_price] which is also higher rated.

Not 4G

The Microsoft Surface RT is not 4G. Most of the other tablet computers of a similar age and spec to the Surface RT are also not 4G.

Chart Edit

Very Short Browsing Time

The shortest browsing time of similar spec tablet computers that were released around the same time as the Surface RT is 8h, the longest is 10h, and the average browsing time is 9.7h. With a browsing time of only 8 hours, the Microsoft Surface RT has a fairly short browsing time compared to most of the other Tegra 3 processor tablets that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The average weight of tablet computers of this age and spec is 600g. The Surface RT is one of the heavier tablets that have been available for a comparable time to the Surface RT (680 grams) amongst tablets of this age.

2 Other reasons to consider the Microsoft Surface RT

Released Over Three Years Ago

This Microsoft tablet has been on the market for over three years.

Four Processor Coress

The Surface RT has four processor coress which is average compared to the other 57 Tegra 3 processor tablets that were launched more than two years ago that we have assessed the number of processor coress of.

We compared this tablet computer to all the other 4 processor cores tablet computers and we think because of it's better review score, the Google Nexus 7[plb_1911534_price] is also worth considering.
