Head-to-Head: Microsoft Surface Vs. Apple iPad


Dimensions

Regarding physical dimensions, Microsoft provided only weight and thickness of its Surface devices; the exact length and width are unknown. The RT version tips the scales at 1.49 pounds (676g) and is 0.36 inches (9.3mm) thick. The lightest iPad 3 model weighs 1.44 pounds (652g) and is 0.37 inches (9.4mm) thick. So at first glance one might say the dimensions were a wash until you remember that Surface includes a keyboard, screen cover and kickstand.
