Apple iPad vs Microsoft Surface RT vs Google Nexus 10 three-quarter view

Overall
Despite very stiff competition from its new rivals, the Apple iPad retains its crown as top 10in tablet, boasting a compelling complete ecosystem offering, a decent - albeit not on a par with the Nexus 10's - screen, fast performance and excellent battery life.

However, we should point out that for those looking for a full-on laptop replacement, the Surface RT is currently the only valid option, featuring support for Microsoft's email and a full version of Office 2013. The only downside of this is that people wanting to use the Surface in this way will have to buy its Touch Cover keyboard add-on, which adds an extra £80 to the device's cost.

Similarly, the Nexus 10 features its own unique selling points, boasting a host of custom Android software services like Google Now and more affordable price tag.
