Apple has the advantage with iPad with the Apple ecosystem such as iTunes and the app store? I have never owned an Apple computer and I have been using iTunes for years. Why would I buy an iPad to use iTunes? That is the least convenient of the Apple products to use iTunes. The Apple app store is only of value if you are using a limited O/S such as iOS. The Surface has a real O/S with live tiles and real programs. That makes the iPad look like a Fisher Price toy.
