No. 1 - The straw-man argument goes nowhere. The review was of the Surface RT, not the Surface Pro, and the RT has similar battery life to the iPad. The Pro is so much more than the RT or iPad that its not fair to compare the two.
No. 2 - Most reviewers agree that the retina display has a higher resolution which makes text appear sharper. Other than that, side-by-side comparisons show that there is little difference between the two in color, contrast, and overall quality of picture. Plus its widescreen, which even Apple is finally admitting is superior by making their new iPhone conform.
No. 3 - Ad homonym attacks are never appreciated. Please refrain from attacking the person rather than their opinion.
