The Surface has a USB port built-in, meaning it is compatible with other gadgets like game controllers, printers, mice and any other peripherals you may want to attach to it.

The latest iPad still doesn’t offer USB unless you buy a USB adaptor as an accessory.

Of course on of the big talking points of the MS Surface is the fact the cover is also a detachable keyboard. The tablet comes with a choice of a Touch Cover or Type Cover keyboards. The Touch Cover is super thin at just 3mm and is a flat keyboard so typing may take some getting used to. The Type Cover is more like a very thin keyboard with depressible keys which might make more sense if you want to use it for longer periods of time for work.

The iPad has a similar keyboard accessory.
