  • Expert Rating


  • 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

Bottom Line

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. There are still some issues regarding its usability and finish.
