CNN election commentators were given Microsoft Surface tablets to use but it appears that some of them preferred the iPad.

Observant viewers spotted the commentators hiding their iPads behind the Surface tablets and even using the Surface as an iPad stand!

Take a look at photos of this marketing stunt gone wrong below...

I'd probably do the same thing. I HATE Windows and would never want to use the Surface.

No offense guys. But I think these people prefer to use the device they are used to using already. An iPad doesn't hold a candle to a Surface. And it's a strong opponent to an Air as well. If you are going to do anything of significance, you're going to want an actual computer and not an iPad.

Totally understand your argument but Windows significantly needs to stabilize their surface before even considering being a forefront of any laptop replacement. I barely get my work done without being frustrated with office 365 with it's assumption that this is what I want. Pretty much ruing a lot of my documents and contacts. Take that as a consideration when you have documents and contacts that you need to maintain. Microsoft needs a lot more testing rather assume what is right for you. That is the biggest difference to what Windows and OSX does for me. Windows assumes and it will make that change, OSX gives you the tools and will give you that option. The clear winner is OSX or the handoff with IOS if you know what you are using it for.

I think it's pretty stable as is. I've only played with a SP3 in stores and was blown away with how it performed. Trash is a monster for that small of a package. That pen input is flat out amazing too. As far as documents and contacts go...that fairly easy to maintain regardless of yoru OS preference. I use Google to manage them and I can import them into any iDevice, Android or Windows phone easily. I use Dropbox for documents makes having everything I need available anywhere if it's on another computer or on my phone. And for third party programs you are almost choking yourself with OSX. Even in undergrad I had to install Windows on several Macs just so those people could get work done. And all of those people refused to use anything but Office on their Mac for spreadsheets, word documents, etc. Most just used Office on the windows side of they computer because of the more favorable interface. That's not my opinion, that's some pretty hard core "I love my Mac" type opinions.

Fair statement, but I work in I.T and we were giving the surface pro. Yeah the first time I used the product I was a tad bit surprise..but then I started to USE the product then I was disappointed.
