Why does everyone hate this so much? I'm using one right now and find it to be really useful imo.
Because it's Windows RT. I think the concept of this is really awesome, but everyone would rather prefer the ability to run full Windows apps on this, when you can get a laptop for the same price that does, or some newer Windows 8 tablets coming down the line.
I love the design, but I'm wondering about the functionality...
The new Surface 2 (they are dropping RT from the name) will be out around October 18, MS has the press conference on the 22nd I think to announce it. Rumor has it that it might stick to the $350 price but it's still RT so unless you run a lot of apps from the MS App store, you are better off getting one of the other full 8.1 tablets for the same price.
You will probably see lots of deals on these real soon as stores try to clear inventory for the new model.
I love my surface. Its really great. The web browser feels just like a desktop one. Its pretty fast compared to my old nook hd+. Since I don't use apps this is pretty much the best tablet I've used. This is of course just my opinion so take it as you will...
"Google before you post" it's the new "think before you speak."
I need a tablet for school but I will just wait for the asus transformer t100 windows 8.1 tablet w/ quadcore atom processor that will come out next month for around 350. Can't really do shit with windows rt.
Ugh. I think I'm backing out after looking into it more. My #1 complaint with Windows Phone is that I can't install another real browser. Chrome and Firefox aren't available on it, and IE crashes on some sites for my frequently on Windows Phone.
And I just found out that Chrome isn't available for Windows RT. Neither does Firefox. I will not be forced to use IE again, like Windows Phone.
I'll wait for the full Windows 8 tablets. Good deal for others though!
