I have a Surface of my own at home and I think it can certainly compete with the iPad. Microsoft’s Surface Is actually bigger than Apple’s iPad. Its also a hybrid between a tablet and a laptop with the option to snap a keyboard onto the bottom of the Surface. So, you’re probably wondering,” Ok, why don’t we all just get Surface’s.” Well, the App store on Surface is terrible. Apple has hundreds of thousands more Apps that work and function better than Microsoft’s and that has mass appeal to some people. If Microsoft improved this, Apple would have a big BIG problem.
