In Pictures: 10 reasons why the Surface RT beats the iPad with Retina display

Our hands-on testing of Microsoft’s Surface RT vs. Apple’s iPad with Retina

The Surface RT offers three ways to enter text; the familiar on-screen keyboard, similar to the iPad, plus two attachable keyboards – the Touch Cover and the Type Cover. The Touch Cover is a thin, slightly bendable slab with a touch surface that feels a bit like felt. The Type Cover is an actual keyboard. Both covers attach to the bottom of the Surface RT via magnet. You can hold the Surface RT upside down by the bottom of the keyboard and it stays attached.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
