Definitely not. Even though it has a comparable but different operating platform, this "tablet" does not even come close to being a considered a tablet in my mind. The iPad is so much smaller, lighter, and easy to hold. The Surface is heavy, bulky, and awkward. If this product was marketed as a laptop, I definitely think that it would be a lot better in the eyes of customers. Based on its size, its just like a laptop but has a removable keyboard.
