Comparing the Microsoft RT Surface vs. Apple’s iPad 4

Microsoft’s 2012 Surface venture into the tablet marketplace was greeted with much praise. But how does it stack up against Apple’s iPad 4? Gadget insurance brand, Protect Your Bubble, compares the two tablets.

The Surface RT is a little heavier than the iPad...barely. The Surface weighs in at 1.5lbs. What about the Apple iPad? It weighs in at 1.44lbs. However, for those who are interested in the Surface’s Windows 8 Pro model should know that it is almost two full pounds heavier.

When it comes to screen specs, iPad 4 has a 9.7 inch screen with Retina Display. In terms of resolution, it has a 2048x1536 resolution at 264ppi. Now, look at the Surface: a 10.6 inch screen with 1366×768 pixels and 148 ppi.

For consumes who plan to use the camera feature, the best way to compare is to look at the devices’ rear camera abilities. That being said, they may want to go with the iPad, which boast a five megapixel camera and video specs of 1080p video. The Surface falls short here, with one megapixel and a video capability of 720p.

Before consumers invest in one of these pricy gadgets, they should consider tablet insurance. offers tablet insurance and coverage includes loss, theft, accidents and damage and provides replacement devices in 24 hours. For more information, visit
