Microsoft's Surface RT will make even a fanboy cry

Galen Gruman | Oct. 31, 2012
Is it a laptop or a tablet? The Surface makes a valiant attempt at being both -- but leaves you yearning for one or the other

That fundamental contradiction within the Surface RT is very frustrating. It could be a better business laplet if the software were improved. It could be a better personal tablet if it wasn't trying to also be a laptop and had good consumer-oriented apps. Microsoft doesn't seem to know who the Surface RT is truly for, and the result is neither fish nor fowl.

When all is said and done, the Surface RT is neither a good laplet nor a good tablet. The promise is there, but the delivery is not. What a crying shame.
