Looking at the personal computer market ruler, the operating system is as powerful as they do on PCs. From now on, your familiar interface from your home device will spring up similarly on your Tablet’s screen. Both keyboard and mouse perform exceptionally well on Windows Tablet as well as making you more comfortable in completing your desired tasks. Also, as the whole MSOffice station is inherited from its predecessor, it is highly compatible with work environment reinforced with its close relationship on USB. You can easily carry your Word or PowerPoint files on to your smaller device and continue your work somewhere else. Another interesting feature is Multi users which allow you to simply create many users which suitable for shared devices. It may become useful in some cases such as restricting your kids from excessing certain applications.
Apart from the smiles, there, however, remain some upsets to be discussed. Despite its power to run almost everything, you will get narrower choices in terms of both application and model.

Hopping to the side of the mighty search engine, the first thing you might notice is many devices from various companies are running on Android. These hand you the opportunity to pick what match you the best. In addition, The OS is widely opened to developers meaning that endless stream of apps is coming your way. Another benefit of Android is its highly customizable nature. You will have tons of widgets line up in your display waiting for you to enjoy. Even if you are not an expert user, you still can modify the appearance and functions to some extent without hurting your fingers’ tips. Talking about touch, the touchscreen system is well-optimized suiting almost every feature. Google Android Tablet is also quite easy to learn for new users. To become fluent requires no tech guru skills.
Nevertheless, drawbacks show presence in some field starting with compatibility. Since there are many developers, piles of versions, plenty of models and a lot of modifiers, some problems with applications tend to exist, for example, the interface does not fit the screen size or application cannot run smoothly. Besides, the vast developer pool makes it susceptible to the virus, as numbers of paths can lead the malicious intents into your device unnoticed.
At this moment, it is the time that we come to the conclusion. There is never a winner in this kind of fight, only strengths, and weaknesses. A different person bears different liking and taste. Whether high-performance Windows takes the lead or versatile Google Android Tablet reaches the peak first? It is solely for your judgment to decide.
