I know that all of the functions and limitations of Surface RT have been posted and acknowledged by Microsoft, so I don't expect that people defend the functionality of the tablet. I am writing about this tablet from the perspective of not understanding its purpose. First the hardware. I think this is the best part of the surface. The keyboard (assuming it doesn't tear) is innovative and impressive. The kickstand (even without the ability to adjust the angle) is a wonderful feature. I wish the camera were better, but I know is isn't a device for snapping photos, however, it would be nice that when my daughter and I are sitting in front of it and I can grab a cute photo of us, it would come out looking better than 1mp quality. The usb port is great as is the sd slot. Now, the software.... Windows RT is confusing to me as an operating system. Windows 8 is only a tolerable operating system because it still has the desktop option. With windows RT, you have the desktop option but can't really do anything with it. You can't install software, you can't use IE to launch VPN client. You have to stick to whatever apps you can find on the barren app store. I also do understand that as an early adopter there will be a ramp up period for quality apps (hopefully!). There is no outlook client. I know it was documented that there wouldn't be, but I don't understand why. You can't VPN unless the VPN solution you use creates an app for you do to so. Unlikely. Now, this is where you are saying "but this isn't meant to be the laptop replacement for work!". I hear you.... but again, I don't understand the logic. This tablet is 700.00 (for the 64gb version). It can't replace a work device (no ability to join a domain which means that there is little ability to manage the device out of the box. also without domain join you cannot use MS's DirectAccess for always on VPN). It also can't compete with the tablet market. for the same amount of money you can get a 64gb iPad. I am in NO WAY endorsing the iPad. I can't STAND the iPad. however, it IS a superior tablet OS to the Windows Surface, if not only because of the vast amount of apps it currently has. For entertainment purposes a 199.00 kindle fire HD is much better than the Surface RT. Any android tablet would stand up to the Surface RT. Both android and iOS have a ton of apps. So the answer to a work replacement tablet as well as a functional entertainment tablet will be the Surface Pro. Running around $1,000.00 for 128gb of storage. I CAN'T imagine companies are going to spend $1,000.00 per device for their employees for a device that has LESS than what they can get in a traditional laptop for $700.00! (think HP Elitebook, 500gb HD, 4GB RAM). So that is my confusion. The Surface RT sells for $700.00 and doesn't have (ANY) laptop comparable features or functionality. It also doesn't have near enough tablet functionality. Certainly the iPad is decades ahead of the Surface RT in what it can do. So it is a bad laptop and bad tablet. The Surface Pro, when it ships in 2013, may be a quality laptop replacement but still not a quality tablet replacement (just due to the app availability). However it will have a shocking $1,000.00 sticker price! Thus knocking it out of contention as a corporate device replacement. I don't understand what the target market is for either of the Surface devices.
