Should I buy an iPad or Microsoft Surface?

I have a choice. A 16GB iPad 4 with a polyurethane Smart Cover and a Bluetooth keyboard, around $650. A 32GB Microsoft Surface that comes with a touch cover for $600, give or take. Or an iPad mini with a cover and the wireless keyboard. Around $470. I'll be using it as a computer. I'm a student and I need to type a lot. I want the tablet experience while being able to have all the apps I need with the most features for the money. I could also buy a $499 surface and apple Bluetooth keyboard. A little less than $600. Please help an indecisive person decide! Thanks!

get the Microsoft surface RT
it really is an amazing tablet
it has a 10.6" screen with very good and high resolution
colors look clear and sharp on it
the tablet build quality is amazing
it feels perfect and its made from solid materials
the os on the tablet which is windows 8 is also amazing
its fast and fluid and also simple and easy to use
its made with touch in mind
the web browser is extremely good its fast and pages load up quickly
and it supports flash which is a huge plus and which is something that is lacking on most android tablets and all ios tablets
battery life is very good and would easily get you through more than 10 hours of heavy use
you can download apps from the windows marketplace which has many high quality apps
thousands of apps are being added everyday
more than 2000 apps were added in less than 2 days
it does have more than 20000 apps now and like I said it will keep on increasing
it has dual cameras and both of them take amazing photos and videos
it has deep social network integration(skype,facebook,twitter,linke… and so on)
you also get Microsoft office 2013 for free on it
and if you get the keyboard and attach it to it you'll have a laptop
overall the surface is an amazing tablet and you should get it
hope i helped :)

I would recommend the Microsoft Surface. It comes with a free version of Microsoft Office. Also note that it will not run any previous windows app other than Office. However, you could wait for the surface pro, but it will be more expensive. Also, if you won't be bothered by not being able to dock the keyboard into the surface, I would go with the Bluetooth keyboard. But be sure to make sure it will work with the surface. Hope this helps

If you're not already 'married' to the Apple ecosystem (iPhone, iPad, iTunes, etc) the Microsoft Surface is a pretty attractive option. Since you specifically say 'using it as a computer, the iPad is NOT a good option. MS Office Home and Student (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) is included as well. I would go for the full 'Type' keyboard instead of the 'Touch' one. I think I'd be able to type a bit faster on it, and it isn't all that much thicker.

I say go with the Ipad- you get much more exp the many apps to extend it use

Microsoft Surface, for sure. It offers the compatibility of windows, while delivering the mobility of a tablet.

Microsoft Surface is better ipad doesn't support silverlight and..........etc but Microsoft surface is supporting everything
