I was just wondering if anyone here has a Microsoft Surface RT tablet. I really, really like the look of the Surface and I do actually enjoy using Windows 8. I like the colorful, clip on keyboards and especially like the live tiles of Windows 8 (or Windows 8 RT in this case). However most reviews seem to trash the Surface RT. They (by they I mean a wide variety of reputable sources from various tech blogs to the New York Times) say it tries too hard to be both a tablet and a PC and does neither half as well as it should. They say the desktop mode is a complete and utter disaster, and of course the Windows (app) Store is a barren wasteland compared to the Apple and Android app stores.
I'm a huge Apple fan who uses a MacBook and iPhone and loves both. I also love the iPad. So my thought is I should get either an iPad 2, or 32gb iPad Retina.. They're tried and tested and will certainly appeal to someone already invested in the Apple ecosystem, not to mention the app store features 300,000+ apps...
Any thoughts? I have no desire to get an Android tablet...I simply don't like the Android experience or Samsung hardware.
If I do go with the iPad, should I save $200 and get the iPad 2 (only comes in 16gb) or go for the 32gb Retina iPad ($599, but has double the screen resolution, a faster processor and of course double the storage).
