Surface Tablet vs Ipad?

Which is better. I want to buy something that is fast, precise... etc. Which is better? I'm leaning towards Ipad 3 or Ipad Mini as they are trusted and many people have Ipads. I know that Surface has Windows 8... Which is better and why?

get the machine that does what you need it to do to run the specific programs you need it to run.


think long and hard about what programs you expect this machine to run well... then ask the question again to get the info you asked for.

I'm pretty sure the ipad is built for jive young fellas, whereas the android tablet is more aimed at bamboo-coon growers and finally the windows rt is aimed directly at honky hipsters.

Windows fat OS (slow)
iOS thin OS (fast)

imo if iOS has apps that do what you need, go that way, Otherwise Windows.

Ultimately Windows is a dying paradigm, it will survive but not as the consumer/appliance default.

Yes, this relatively small gaming forum on the internet is an excellent indicator of the nature of all people living in Australia and the way that they interact with each other.

iPad for - fun, consumption, games, thousands of apps.

surface for - productivity (MS Office), work, f*** all apps, poor storage (OS takes up most of it)

what's your primary use requirements?

I'm keen to have a hands on with the surface

I'd easily replace my iPad with one I think, I barely use it

I think having windows would be cool, plus I just love buying new s***

as above, totally depends on what you want it for:

ipad - media consumption, tried and tested

windows surface - more aimed at productivity (get a surface pro not an RT though, pro can run all previous windows apps) but it is pretty much an ultrabook rather than a tablet

nexus/android tablet - media consumption, cheaper, can do more techy stuff, plus you dont have to go into an apple store and feel like a douchebag

Surface RT rocks... as a tablet. If you need a tablet with simple apps for couch surfing, emailing, games, etc, it's great.

Said one person, ever.

Says every person using Google Apps
Says every person using an iPad or iPhone ... Windows 8 phone LOL!

"Windows" needs to reinvent itself (remembering once upon a time Word Perfect was THE standard for Word Processing, today ... what is Word Perfect ? ... ie. Software is onlyu king so long as it's the king).

Windows 8 wasn't that re-invention unfortunately (feels more like a Vista or ME to me), maybe sp1 is ? Live365 is pretty comical, and Office 13 sure is a good way to punish people. I get the underlying ideal/idea I just don't think they got it right.

Well yeah Ipad's are like amazing and have been on for quite a few years but in a few it will get old and many people have already got Ipads. Yeah, there is a Ipad Mini but the most signifact difference is that they are smaller. lol Windows and Surface is new but isn't as good as Ipads... right?

used a surface on Friday night. Impressive piece of gear. Runs full office 13 with a full keyboard - you would never need a laptop again for most uses. $600 tops, too easy.

The Surface that runs full Office is the Pro which is around $1000. The Surface RT at the cheaper price only runs Office RT.
