I have owned an iPad since the introduction of the iPad 2. I use it primarily for content consumption. My main apps are mail, facebook , twitter, flipboard and YouTube. Until recently I was satisfied with the iPad Air. But with the new Surface 3 I feel I can get much more value for my money than the iPad.
Video Talking Points:
The iPad Air 2 is $499 base and so is the Surface 3 but I am gaining so much more.
64 GB Storage vs 16 with the iPad Air 2
I like the built in kickstand of the Surface 3
The larger 10.8” display vs the 9.7” Although its a lower resolution 1920 X 1280 vs 2048 X 1526
I like have a USB 3.0 port the Micro SD card reader, Mini Display Port the micro USB port for charging
The faster Atom X7 processor boosting to 2.6 GHz
A free upgrade to Windows 10 will be killer
A one year free subscription to Office 365
I like the idea of a machine that will function as both a laptop and a tablet when I want
I love the idea of a machine that can support browsing, light gaming, Microsoft productivity tools
So it’s time to part with my iPad Air and get the Surface 3
In my my mind the same 499 purchase a much more powerful and overall useful device.
