The Surface 2 is good tablet if you must have the full Office experience on the go, but for anyone else there are better options out there.70

Microsoft has announced the second generation of its Surface RT tablet, simply called the Surface 2. It now boasts a full HD screen, features updated internals and has a new two-stage kickstand aimed to make it easier to use on your lap.70

The Microsoft Surface 2 makes no attempt to replace your PC. It's very much a tablet, but one that uses native Windows software so it will integrate more easily with your PC. There's not much appeal for Apple users, but its build quality, speed...70

It’s just that the Surface 2 is lost in between laptop and tablet, doing neither as well as it probably could do. The keyboard cover is good, but it is nothing more.

The Surface 2 is a paradox. We love its hardware and the Start screen continues to improve, as does the Windows Store. If we never entered the classic desktop mode (old-style Windows), we'd enjoy this tablet a lot more. But, as Microsoft makes clear...80

The Surface 2 is one of the nicest slices of tablet hardware available, but it still runs Windows RT, which means app selection is limited. Plus, its pricey keyboard covers make the total cost hard to swallow....70
