    10 advantages Windows 8 tablets have over the competition


    The iPad is still king in the tablet space when it comes to market share and Android is trying to grab more share all the time. Microsoft designed Windows 8 to run on tablets in an attempt to bring the OS into the hot tablet segment.

    Android tablets and the iPad are solid tablets, but Windows 8 has distinct advantages over both of the other platforms. Windows 8 is a full PC OS and that brings some important capabilities to the tablet.
    The 10 features in this collection that give Windows 8 an advantage over the competition are by no means the only ones. They are significant enough to break them out from the rest.
    Note: some of these advantages exist on Windows RT tablets but not all of them. This article was written for tablets with Windows 8 Pro. Windows 8 Pro is used on numerous tablets currently available.

    I still say that a Windows tablet even with only limited PC functionality is still more useful than an iPad and Android. I don't know why people have to have this all or nothing attitude with Windows tablets. Either it does everything you can do on a desktop or laptop or it's useless. If that's the case, why should tablets even exist?

    A lot depends upon the apps that you want. For example, if you are an audio producer, you may find the tablet type apps for the iPad are just far better than anything available for the Surface. Therefore, it might be far more useful to you

    Lots just want the simplicity of Android and iPad. It's not an OS that you usually have to worry about backing up, protecting from viruses and malware, etc. When things usually go way south, it's just a matter or resetting back to factory. All too often, things are not quite this simple in the Windows world
