When you’re looking at buying a new device it can be really hard to compare each device with one another without flicking between multiple tabs in your browser. The Windows team here at Microsoft have now made it easy, with their new comparison site for tablets.

The site gives you the option to compare some of our favourite Windows 8 tablets, including our very own Surface RT, against the iPad, showing you all the key specs you want to know such as battery life, weight and the ever important price.

In addition, you can find out about a few of the features and functions that each tablet provides, such as the Office suite, free cloud storage and printing capabilities.

Whether you’re in the market for a tablet, or are just interested in seeing the difference in available devices, check it out!
