Convenient for Work or Entertainment, Whichever You Prefer!
Over the years, I have owned several laptops and tablets (such as iPads), but I had never had a device that combined the two like the Surface RT does. This tablet is ideal for people who are on the go a lot and do not like the idea of a bulky computer. It is also perfect for people who enjoy the convenience of apps alongside the ability to get work done. The convenient combination of a laptop and a tablet is why the Surface Pro has been the best tablet I have ever owned.
Originally, I bought the Surface RT to replace my broken laptop. I will admit that at first I was a little skeptical of completely replacing my computer with a tablet since there was no CD port, but I found that I don’t really need a CD port since almost anything can be found in an app or online. I also found that the advantages of the Surface Pro outweigh any slight inconveniences it may have.
As a college student, I take my tablet to every class and use it for both homework and entertainment daily, so it was important that I got a device that could meet my needs. Thankfully, the Surface RT does. Physically, the Surface RT has an ultra slim design that allows it to have a light weight. The keyboard doubles as a cover and can fold back or come off when it is not in use, so there is no need for that bulky case other tablets might have. The back of the tablet has a built in kickstand that allows it to stand upright on its own. The Surface Pro also has a USB port, built in speakers, both front and rear facing cameras, and it has a long battery life.
As previously mentioned, the Surface RT is a combination of a tablet and a computer. The tablet side of the Surface RT allows easy touchscreen access to fun apps and games where as the computer side provides access to Microsoft programs such as PowerPoint, Excel, or Word which allows the user to get work done as needed. While working on projects, I have found that the Surface RT is also extremely good at multitasking. It allows you to spit the screen with multiple programs at once so you can work on and view more than one thing at once. If you have something open on a different app, all you have to do is swipe your finger to the right and then it immediately appears on the screen. I found this feature extremely convenient as I often need to look at notes or do some research while writing a paper.
Ultimately, looking at a combination of the overall level of convenience, size, quality, features, and price, I have not been able to find any tablet that can compare to the Surface RT. If you find yourself in need of a slim tablet that has the ability to provide both entertainment and a way to get work done efficiently, look no more, the Surface Pro is the perfect tablet for you!
