RE: Why would anyone buy a MS tablet?

The surface RT is a wonderful device and the OS is way more fully featured than Android and iOS. It can do things the others can't and I have both an Android tablet, an iPad mini, and my brother has a Surface RT. The Surface is the best of the bunch. The lack of Apps and the slow hardware are the only things holding it back, but MS is paying developers to convert their Apps to it, and the new quad core Snapdragon processors will fix the speed issue. I'm waiting on the Surface RT v2 and then I'm getting one.
