Microsoft’s new Surface Pro tablet in every way is a complete business tool and really blurs the line between a laptop and a tablet device. I guess the first question to ask is; what can’t I do on a Surface that I could do on a laptop?
The answer is pretty much nothing.
The Surface is using the same Windows operating system that 90% + businesses use worldwide, meaning that any of your business applications that you use with your business desktop and laptop, can be used on the Surface.
Now ask yourself the same question for an iPad or any other tablet device. What can’t I do with my iPad or Android tablet that I can do with my laptop?
Whilst many tablets are appealing the business user needs:
- The full Microsoft Office 2013 Suite
- The ability to plug in external devices easily and without hassle
- Access to the same business tools / applications I use in the office.
Essentially I need my tablet to be just like my PC at my desk and basically, my iPad or Android tablet is only used for email and surfing the web.
Please provide comments, a good debate on this would be so we can have an open debate on this and appreciate your thoughts and comments.
