Microsoft Surface Pro 2: Feature-Packed Powerhouse With Intel i5 Processor and 8GB RAM!
Microsoft has announced the next generation of its Surface 2 Windows 8 tablets. The Surface Pro 2, the superior cousin built for desktop-like performance in a tablet’s casing. It features a power Intel i5 processor (4th Generation) clocked at 1.6GHz dual-core and up to 8GB of RAM.
With a stylus dubbed as ‘Surface Pen’ docked into a sagely designed port, a swish kickstand on the back for media munching and video calling, Intel HD Graphics 4400 and up to 512GB of storage space, it’s a complete tablet PC and not just a tablet for name sake.
Designed as a plausible replacement for notebooks and convenience of portability in equal measures, the Surface 2 Pro Windows 8 tablet comes with a host of improvements, and several praise-worthy enhancements including better graphics, bigger battery for longer usage, and quite some variety for everyone to choose from, the Surface 2 Pro is nothing short of everything.
With up to 50% more graphics, 20% better performance and 75% more battery life than the original surface, this sturdy-looking device comes with twin 720p HD cameras – one on each of largest sides, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, USB 3.0, a microSD card slot, a mini Display port, standard audio jack and built-in stereo speakers. No wonder why its seen as one of the best Windows 8 tablets so far.
Other than the top-end version which comes with 512GB of storage and 8GB of RAM, the Surface 2 Pro is also available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB variants. However, it is worth noting that both 64GB and 128GB ship with only 4GB of RAM, which is still pretty much for a device of mobile family.
The Surface 2 Pro price (mentioned below) might come as a shocker to many since most tablets come for about half as much the price, but with the tablet shipping a licensed version of Windows 8.1 OS out of the box, that price tag shouldn’t seem too hefty.
Microsoft Surface 2 Pro Pricing and Capacity:
64GB model - $899 (ships with 4GB RAM)
128GB model - $999 (ships with 4GB RAM)
256GB model - $1299 (ships with 8GB RAM)
512GB model - $1799 (ships with 8GB RAM)
