I don’t see what’s so great about this Microsoft Surface thing. Then again, I said the same thing about the iPad when it came out. But I got one for Christmas this past year, and I now love it. But for the most part, I can’t see what new features this brings to the tablet.
The only advantage I can see for the Surface is that it has the touch-type keyboard. That isn’t important to me, as I don’t touch-type, but I can see how that would be a big feature to people who can. But any small advantage that may offer over the iPad seems negated by the cheesy-looking user interface of the Surface, plus the problem of it being rather late to the tablet party.
