Surely after comparing the two tablets major specifications, you have a better idea which of the two tablets better fits your needs. But, please allow me to express my personal opinion, it is clear that the Microsoft Surface Tablet wins when it comes to ports and storage and it is clear that Microsoft considers these there two strong points.

So far the price for the Microsoft Surface Tablet has not been mention yet but it has been said that the most basic model of the tablet is going to have the price of the tablets that you are already seeing in the market. That gives a price range of about US$400 to US$600. The Pro version of the tablet is going to be in the Ultrabooks price range which should be around US$900 to US$1200. That is obviously a crazy price for a tablet and that just might be what might make this tablet a complete failure for Microsoft.

It is clear that the tablet war between Microsoft and Apple has just begun and here at Webnalyzer we offer you front row seats to the meanest and most brutal war between these two tech giants and if you don’t want to miss a beat the don’t forget to follow us.
