    I love the bezel size, and never understand this push for bezeless displays. Where am I meant to hold it? I need somewhere to place my thumb to get a firm grip.

    To be honest: the iPad just looks great. Functionality set aside: the bezels look kinda 1993 :)

    I think the bezels on my Surface Pro are ok. Shouldn't be any bigger. I have an Archis Cesium 80. I love the fact that the side bezels are this thin.

    Currently I am on vacation and I am using my Samsung Galaxy S8 as navigation. I am this happy with it that I am thinking more and more not to build my SP in the car, but buy a separate Android tablet (Samsung Tab S2/3 or the new 16:10 variant) and run Google Maps, Spotify etc from that. Point here is: small bezels in such cases are a blessing as it looks much better!

    I got one because it was closer to the price of an iPad AND it will play DVDs (and Blu-Ray with the right software)! STUPID iPad will not play a DVD (even with an external DVD drive). Shortsighted if you ask me. So, now I have a tablet that will play a DVD.

    It looks nice, but my current devices - S3, Acer Switch 12, Samsung Tab-E 9.6 and new Fire HD 8 - serve me well right now.

    I might be ready when they come out with the Surface Go 3.

    I was hoping to wait for LTE, but my old Surface 3 started to give up the ghost. Now a proud owner of a 128/8GB Go. Love it!

    I got the most basic model with points I had stored up. My main PC is SB2, this one stays in my living room as a media consumption device and for quick Google searches and random solitaire games. For my needs, its perfect. When I need real power or games, I have my "real" computer.

    If that is your basic usage....why not use a simple Android tablet? (No judgement, just a question)
