Microsoft Surface Pro 2 Windows 8.1 tablet

 

The Surface 2 Pro provides some benefits over the original, but it's not perfect

Great overall design (we love the kickstand) ; Full HD screen ; Lots of CPU speed in a small tablet form factor ; Is a great hybrid if you use Type Cover 2 ; Optional Power cover to improve battery life

Battery life not as good as we'd hoped ; Lacks integrated full-sized HDMI and SD facilities ; Wi-Fi could be better ; Easily scratched

The second version of Microsoft's Surface Pro tablet offers some good enhancements, primarily to the kickstand and the available accessories. We think it's a great tablet all up, especially if you like the idea of carrying around a fully functional...

Microsoft Surface Pro 2 reviewed: Small tweaks for a big tablet

 

This slate sequel has better battery life and performance, but the thick body feels more like a Surface Pro 1.5.

The ; is a faster, longer-battery-life version of the original model, upgraded with a current-gen Haswell processor. The keyboard cover is also improved with backlit keys, and is among the best tablet accessories ever devised.

The Surface Pro 2 remains stubbornly thick and heavy compared with some sleeker competitors. The base 64GB version may leave you starved for storage, and the keyboard cover, practically required, should be included instead of sold separately.

Microsoft's subtly updated Windows 8.1 tablet feels more like Surface Pro 1.5 -- improved battery life and better accessories make it a worthwhile (albeit pricey) laptop replacement, but it's still not an iPad-level category killer.

Microsoft Surface Pro 2 and Surface 2 reviewed: exceptional pieces of hardware

 

With unsold stock of the original Surface RT burning a billion-dollar hole in Microsoft's finances, the company needs to make amends.

Neither Surface is the best tablet on the market; neither is the best laptop. They are, however, the best hybrid packages out there for people who can’t afford, or don’t want, both.

Awkwardly positioned in tablet and notebooks markets, but easily the best hybrid.

REVIEW: Surface Pro 2

 

The Surface Pro 2 delivers on the productivity front but a hefty price tag and the weighty form factor might be a turn off for some consumers.

Microsoft Surface Pro 2 Australian Review: This Is The Future

 

Tablets are great consumption devices. Media looks great on a portable screen you can just shove in your bag when you're done, but actually being productive on one is a pipe dream. Thankfully, with the Surface Pro 2, that pipe dream is finally becoming...

This device is representative of the hybrid tablet-laptop future that we want. Not only is it still freaking gorgeous to look at, it’s running a fully featured operating system, packing in amazing accessories and ports for you to expand your...

Surface Pro 2 Review: A Little Bit Better, But So Much The Same

 

The original Surface Pro was many things, but chief among them was strange. Not only did it deftly — if not quite perfectly — straddle the line between tablet and laptop, but it also straddled the line between futurist ideal and problematic product....

If you found nothing compelling about the Surface Pro, there’s little here to change your mind. The appeal is still pretty niche. This device is largely for professionals who have some sort of specific need for ultra-portability mixed with a...
