I would not recommend if this is going to be your only device. however, since I have an iPad, nexus 7, and kindle fire HD, I decided to give this one a try. I love so far. I use it for school and no other tablet beats it. I connect Bluetooth mouse and keyboard and use to write papers, take notes and research the net during class. Editing MS Office docs just like you do on your PC is what sets it apart. without that, this is worthless. I used to take my laptop to school. now I take this with me and is much better. you can edit two docs side by side and copy and paste from one to the other with so much ease. iPad cannot beat this functionality. but like said, makes nice addition to your collection of devices. would not get this if I could only afford one device.
The newer Surface RT 2 also is priced at about $450 isn't it?
This model is possibly $199.
And doesn't it now come with OUTLOOK in the V8.1 update?
(I'm not sure if it's full Outlook or such a badly scaled down version.)
Heck, to have an MS portable Office device (with Outlook) for $199 seems to be a good deal, but I still can't decide on getting this or a full-app device such as an IPad or Nexus 7. (APPs or office? decisions decisions)
1366x768 vs 1920x1080 and 2 hours additional battery life is marginal improvement?
The orginal Surface RT is not worth more than $99.
Do not by anything with win8 RT. From an app perspective there is nothing but crapware. Regular windows programs are not supported leaving you with a device that has mediocre battery life and is only good for browsing the web, answer email, and typing up documents. For $100 more you can get a small touch screen laptop with better hardware and support for a full fledged OS of your choice.
