Why buy a Windows RT tablet over an iPad at same price?

Just a few reasons that come to mind:

  • Office 2013 included for free ($140 value per PC*).
  • Expandable storage (works with inexpensive 32GB cards).
  • No cumbersome dongles or accessories needed (USB, HDMI, mSD slots included).
  • Works with your existing peripherals (printers, scanners, mice, keyboards, game controllers, etc.).
  • Windows file system access.
  • Purchased apps on Windows tablets will be free and synced on all of your Windows 8 PCs.
  • Larger screen better for video watching, side-by-side multitasking and productivity.
  • More hardware choice & options now and going forward.

*Microsoft will be increasing the price of Office Home & Student to $140 and you will now have to buy a separate license for each PC from now on if you are not a subscriber. http://www.zdnet.com/microsoft-announces-office-2013-prices-and-packaging-7000004381/
