Then there's Office...
A lot has been said about the need for Microsoft Office on tablets, and while there are decent alternatives to Office on the other tablet platforms, there's no solution as complete as the genuine article.
Windows is the only platform that can run Office locally, and that means Windows tablets stand alone in this regard. Many OEMs offer Microsoft Office included in the purchase price which rounds out the value proposition.
You might be able to get by with one of the alternate office suites available for the iPad or Android tablets, but with a Windows tablet there's no question you can handle everything thrown your way.
Do some real work
You hear a lot of discussion about what constitutes real work, and while I can do my work on any tablet, some need Windows. Many companies have a requirement to use Microsoft Office as discussed in the previous slide, so a Windows tablet is the only option.
Other companies and prospective tablet buyers use software that is proprietary for their operation, and that usually means Windows. These tablets are full PCs as previously stated, so no matter what doing real work entails, a Windows tablet can handle it.
Lots of apps
You've probably heard that there are not as many apps in the store on Windows compared to the iPad or Android. That's certainly true, but with full Windows onboard these tablets have access to a huge library of apps.
The ability to run new apps in the Microsoft Store along with older, legacy Windows apps opens up the playing field for Windows tablets. It would be nice if there were more apps in the app store optimized for tablets, but the collection is growing fast.
Meanwhile, Windows tablet buyers can keep using the programs they have been using for years, until the number of modern apps is greatly increased.
