The following is a Plus Edition article, written by and copyright by Dick Eastman.I purchased a new Microsoft Surface tablet computer on October 26, the first day they became available. I would like to describe my experiences with it so far.
I will also compare the new Windows Surface to the current Apple iPad for two reasons. First, the iPad commands 70% of the tablet computer market; so, every new tablet that appears in the marketplace obviously will be compared with its biggest competitor. Second, I already own an iPad; so, I automatically compare the two systems in my mind.
