Surface Pro 2 24

5 of 10

Microsoft Surface Pro 2

Originally reviewed by 22 October 2013

Best 10-inch Windows 8 Laptop and Tablet Hybrid

Key features:
  • Much improved battery life
  • New, improved kickstand and touch cover
  • Cooler and quieter
Much improved battery life turns the Microsoft Surface Pro 2 into a genuine contender for your money over an Ultrabook or a larger iPad. Is it a genuine tablet? Not yet. It's too heavy and the battery life still not long enough, but its flexibility as an all-star tablet/laptop/desktop hybrid is undeniable. Nothing comes close to replicating it, so for this reason alone we recommend it. It's a recommendation with some caveats - we wish it was lighter as it would make it a much better tablet, as would a better stocked app store, and Microsoft needs to sort out the high DPI issues on the desktop side of things - but the Surface Pro 2 delivers on the potential the original only hinted at.

Price: £719
