Microsoft Surface 2 Pro Style

  • It’s hard to deny that the Surface Pro 2 is one of the cooler looking new tablet/laptops with its dark titanium finish and covers that come in a variety of colors to suit just about everyone.  It’s thin, light, colorful and fun.

Performance

  • It’s hard to believe that they fit a 4th Generation Intel Core i5 processor into such a small package, but they did it! What that means for you is outstanding performance on par with much larger laptops in a tablet-sized package.
  • As an extra bonus, the Intel Core i5 is one of the most energy-efficient processors on the market and that means longer computing times between charges.
  • The Surface Pro 2 can be configured with 4 or 8 GB of RAM which is enough to handle most use requirements including multi-tasking apps. The model we have featured includes 4 GB of RAM.

Keyboard/Touchpad

  • Surface Covers make it easy to convert from a tablet to a laptop by literally snapping in place. They offer the benefits of a regular keyboard in an ultra-thin, lightweight format.
  • And now the Cover keyboards are even backlit for use in all lighting conditions.
  • Microsoft added a new dual-position Kickstand to the Surface Pro 2 that gives you one more handy option for maximum
  •  comfort. Now you can place the Surface in your lap for comfortable use while watching TV, on a plane, or while riding in the car.
  • The added convenient angle gives you the flexibility to video chat with friends and family or create a new spreadsheet or presentation.
  • Don’t forget about the new digital pen! Now you can easily use drawing and note-taking applications the way they were meant to be used. Write on your documents, presentations, and PDFs just the same as you would on paper.
 
 

Cameras
