Surface RT screen not sharper than the new iPad, says screen guru, Surface Pro might have a shot

His premise was that the reflectance ratio of the Surface tablet is smaller, plus it uses the patented ClearType font drawings, while higher reflectance affects contrast and perceived resolution when light is falling directly on the screen, like he demonstrated: “Doing a side by side with the new iPad in a consistently lit room, we have had many people see more detail on Surface RT than on the iPad with more resolution.”
new iPad, and an iPad 2. He concluded that the netbook was “significantly sharper” than the iPad 2, but “significantly less sharp” than the new iPad′s "Resolutionary" screen.Everyone's favorite display guru Dr Raymond Soneira from DisplayMate, however, expressed its doubts about those claims, as he compared an Asus netbook with ClearType and the Surface's resolution, to the
Dr Soneira, however, mentioned that while the Surface RT tablet might not be up to par with the 3rd iPad generation screen, the 1920x1080 display on the Surface Pro with ClearType might have a clearer shot at the clarity crown:

Its not about the screens only, come Novemebr Surface will start flying off the shelves no matter what because you just simply can't go wrong with Windows! The world uses Windows for now, they need it and they'll buy it! Period! And what are people going to do with 3rd gen iPad's display? Like it like an ice-lolly??? They way I see it iPad may have the sharper display but Windows RT with its productivity suite or Surface Pro with full desktop/laptop functionality will boot out any tablet it is compared with because its a full-fledged Windows operating system. Its a computer and you cant compare any tablet iPad or other to the Surface Pro because its just less of a device

As i too am from the IT consultancy I agree with you but add to that the consumer still uses windows not to mention a lot of SMEs use Windows Server ecosystem because its familiar and easier to sustain. Major corporations all use Linux and Oracle but MS offers great packages not to mention a complete one-stop-shop ecosystem for companies hence small and medium companies which form the bulk of registered companies in a country use Windows And I dont get it why are people thumbing me down instead of presenting reason? Huh PA I am gettin tired of fanboyS. I am not a Windows fan but I just stated obvious facts based on trends

I would agree with you on this, I love Linux, but it doesn't have as many programs as Windows. And I don't mean a little less, like iOS vs Android or Mac vs Windows. I mean a LOT less. For this reason, I always choose Windows for its powerful foundation and incredible compatibility.

Not true. There are many other factors such as reflectance and pixel layout like RGB to name a couple.

I think Michael H. just wrote an article three days ago reporting Microsoft’s applied sciences department manager claims the iPad ""Retina" display of the new iPad actually hinders readability." And provided the reason why. http://www.phonearena.com/news
I'll take the Surface screen any day!
