Tablet talk: Microsoft Surface worth buying?

I'm no Apple fanboy, but the outlook for Microsoft isn't good--from their Windows 8 OS to their new tablet--

Microsoft Surface: Why is the new tablet so much worse than the iPad? - Slate Magazine: " . . . the new tablet’s flaws are glaring: It’s too slow, it’s mercilessly buggy, and the add-on that’s supposed to set it apart from the iPad—its touch-cover keyboard and trackpad—is nice but far from revolutionary. At $499 for the base model, plus $120 for the almost-required touch cover, the Surface is also not very competitive on price: You can get the newest standard iPad for the same $499, the still pretty good iPad 2 for $399, and the new iPad Mini for $329. . . . "

Bottom line: either buy the Nexus 7 or go Apple (iPad or mini iPad).
