We have had the Surface for a while (by MicroSoft). We like it. It's easy to use and comes with many commonly used programs already on it. The great thing is that it keeps track of what the kids do and sends an update to our email. It even lets us know what they search. There are some great apps already as well. It has a stand built into the back of it and we purchased the keyboard. Although we still love our iPads, it works well for us!
