Four tablets to choose from, which one would you choose?

Price range not much different although Amazon could be cheaper, depends on what you want to buy. Are a Gamer? Are you a Movie enthusiast? Are you averse to carrying a tablet heavier than 1,5 lb.". Are you going to do serious business with it? Is your hobby photography? You have to make the choice. Here is a line up of the choices.

Surface Pro 2

64GB,128GB,256GB,512GB

keyboard, printers and other peripherals.  It is a tablet, no it is a
PC.

The nice thing is you can put stuff into it and take it out
relatively easily with ports. It has business applications
perfected over decades. I suppose enterprise customers will buy
them as presents to their employees.
