Should I get a windows 8 tablet or a Ipad 4? If I want to play games and stuff.
You should buy Windows 8 tablet. The Razer Edge Pro is the best for gaming and you should try it out. It is very fast well built, and a total blast to use. Go to http://www.cnet.com/laptops/razer-edge-pro-core/4505-3121_7-35561052.html for details.
Get a Nexus. Less expensive and does anything the others do. The Windows 8 stuff is still pretty limited, not everyone is keen on it, and the iPad is way expensive and just resting on their laurels.
i say get the surface
