Surface 2 gets more pixels and new processors

The surface pro 2 has a haswell processor from intel and windows 8.1 on board and should be able to replace a notebook so completely. According to the manufacturer, the battery lasts around 60 percent longer than that of the first surface pro.

The regular surface 2, on the other hand, is only equipped with the slimmed-down windows version RT, which is not compatible with regular programs for the operating system. Microsoft equips the tablets with its own software, including a customized version of office. Inside the tablet is the nvidia tegra 4 chip with four cores and a clock speed of 1.7 gigahertz. At the same time, microsoft has reduced the weight: according to the manufacturer, the surface 2 is 676 grams lighter than the previous model.

Both surface variants have a new display that can now show images in full HD resolution (1920 by 1080 pixels) on a ten-inch screen diagonal. The built-in stand for setting up the tablet now has two levels, allowing a little more flexibility. For the surface pro 2, depending on the equipment, at least 879 euros will be required. For this price, you can get the basic version with 4 gigabytes of memory and 64 gigabytes of hard drive space. The surface 2 costs at least 429 euro.

As far as accessories are concerned, little has changed: the covers with built-in keyboards, called touch cover and type cover, now have built-in lighting and will be on the market for 120 and 130 euros respectively when the tablets go on sale. There is also a new power cover, which in addition to physical buttons also provides additional power, and a docking station for the surface pro.
