I'v been looking for a media tablet on and off now for a couple of years. Its not a burning need, it's just something I thought would be nice to have for the right price. Recently the surface RT popped up on my radar and while it is a technological dead end, it seems to have held up well build quality wise. It comes with a basic office suite so I could work a little, the battery life is ok at 8ish hours mixed use, the 10.6" screen is a touch over 720p and matches the aspect ratio of most movies, has HD video out,a full sized USB 2 port and stereo speakers. In this (local) price bracket it faces mostly older ipads, galaxy tabs, hp slates etc. Is it worth considering?
