If you are used to play iPad, you may feel it’s awkward to use Windows Surface RT. According to kinds of reviews and my own tests, this tablet isn’t really good for playing games. But some 1080p videos can be played well. Actually, this win8 tablet aims to business uses. It’s powerful enough to work as a laptop, and the full new tablet experience is also really amazing.
