Is the Surface RT Tablet a good choice for my parents?

Episode 1004 (40:14)

Ben from South Carolina

Ben's parents are going to Las Vegas and he wants to know if they should get a Windows tablet or an Android tablet. Leo says at $229, the Google Nexus 7 is a no-brainer.

If they need a larger screen, as Ben's mother does, then the Windows Surface RT with a type cover may be the way to go since it's $150 cheaper now.

The chatroom says if he buys the Surface RT refurbished from Microsoft, he can get the type cover as well for the $350 price.
