I took advantage of black friday and ordered three sandisk 64GB ultra MicroSDXC flash cards at $39.95 each and a Kingston Mobilite G3 USB 3.0 card reader for $9.30. I will put one 64GB MicroSDXC in the MicroSDXC slot behind the kickstand on the surface. Then on the Kingston G3 it has two memory slots a MicroSDXC and a SDXC I will put my other two MicroSDXC 64GB cards into the two slots and then plug it into the Surface's USB 2.0 port. This will add another 192GB of fast storage to the 32GB it shipped with. Windows will assign a drive letter to each card inserted to the Kingston G3.

Hello apple, HAHAHAHAHAHA

Also, Apple isn't the only company that makes tablets. Feel free to laugh at them, but what about everyone else?

I said expansion, not SD specifically. With the same Kingston G3 and two 64GB MicroSDXC you can add 128GB storage to your nexus using the OTG. OF course you'd have to format it as it won't be able to use ex-FAT and will be stuck with FAT32, but it will work. Don't try this at home apple fans.

the ipads a good machine, but OS wise i'd take surface i just like windows better in general and its more fleshed out OS wise afaik.

iPad's are still good bits of kit but i'd take surface once more developers get on board with RT and Win mob 8.

:lol: not to defend apple, their crap is equally overpriced, but the surface is one of the worst x86 win tablets out there. It has recieved terrible reviews. Plus microsofts profit margin on the surface is even LARGER then Apple's profit margin on ipad.

Yeah, having ways to cheaply and greatly expand your storage capacity is very moronic, good catch!

Wow, what epic FAIL. It's not even a x86 tablet it's an ARM tablet. It hasn't received terrible reviews either, only people pointing out that it has less apps. Imagine that having just launched and having less apps? Good thing the OS destroys the others, eh?

You can use a MicroSDXC, but you'd have to re-format it to FAT32 and suffer the 2GB file size limitation, but it'll work.

The Surface vs. iPad argument is silly.

People buy a Surface because they are looking for the flexibility they get with the PC combined with the form factor of a tablet. The Surface has a USB port, an actual file explorer, Office 2013 for free, and many other nice things that are great for productivity. The iPad, on the other hand, has a huge app store as well as integration with Apple's other products.

I have a Surface personally, but I would have no problems recommending an iPad, depending on what a person is looking for from their tablet.

Can you only buy a surface direct from microsoft? Their hipster ads are all over TV but I've literally never seen one in any store, or owned by anyone, anywhere, ever.

Really, OK I need extra storage I think I'll use a 64GB MicroSDXC or maybe that sexy 64GB 195MB/sec USB stick , your better option on ipad is what exactly? I want to network and transfer files quickly over the wifi so I touch on file explorer and then touch on network and then touch whatever PC on the system and access and transfer files immediately even using wake on LAN, your better ipad option is? I want to skype from outdoors, but I don't want my microphones to pick up the wind noise, your better ipad option is?

I want to multi task two programs on the viewable screen simultaneously, your better ipad option is?

I'm working on presentation in powerpoint with the pictures, art and video and the secondary apps I'm also multitasking with I'm using up well over 1.5 GB of RAM, your better ipad solution is?

Dont Skype outdoors when its windy you nub.

Why would I need to do that? Try wirting a document on half the screen without squinting at the screen.
