Hi I have been looking to buy a windows surface rt since messing around with one at work, but before buying I was wondering if they are actually any good, I was trying to do basic things like install simple programs but since they didn't come from the windows store it wont install them is there a way around this?
I would probably be best waiting off for one of those any good places with reasonable prices for them?
Unlikely. The Surface Pro looks and feels like a tablet but it's got much higher-end specs than most tablets. It's a complete computer with Ultrabook-level specs, it just doesn't have a keyboard. It's equivalent to a MacBook Air in terms of specs.
If you want a tablet but don't want to pay the price of a Surface Pro, get an iPad Air. If you hate Apple or think that's too expensive, get one of the many good Android tablets out there. Windows RT just isn't worth it. --- -What is best in life? -To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women.
