    While the Surface 2 provided a decent tablet experience that looked like Windows 8 and yet provided virtually none of the compatibility Windows 8 users could hope for, the Surface Pro 2 is a different beast altogether, revealing a solid Windows 8 tablet experience with all of the compatibility you... Read more

    • Excellent performance with Intel Haswell processors, Runs proper Windows 8, not that Windows RT thing that hates Windows apps, Supports USB 3.0, Metal build makes it very sturdy, Decent battery life, Stand can be positioned in two ways, Power adaptor can also simultaneously charge a device ...
    • Very expensive, Only one USB 3.0 port, Keyboard isn't included, Heavy

    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 computer in a tablet form factor. Read more

    • 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

    I rather infamously broke a cardinal rule of reviewing back when the Surface RT came out, declaring right at the start of my review that you shouldn’t buy one. I probably didn’t make too many friends at Microsoft that day, but I stand by that verdict. Read more

    Microsoft’s Surface series of computers have always been something a little different, representing the next generation of tablet computing. But it has never really had a proper computer, until now, that is. Read more

    • Excellent screen, Enough ports to satisfy a computer owner, Hybrid connectivity is very interesting, Solid performance (generally) with an option for a discrete graphics chip and a large amount of memory, Great keyboard with a soft and lovely click to it, Lovely little trackpad mouse
    • Thick in comparison to some of the computers it competes against, Hinge is a little odd, and thick enough to elicit a feeling that the Surface Book comes from 2010, No USB Type C or Thunderbolt 3 port, Battery life is all over shop, Can be very buggy, Casing is still easy to scratch
