We loved much about the original Surface Pro but a few gotchas held us back from lavishing it with more praise. Microsoft's second effort washed away our concerns and the MS Surface Pro 2 is an awesome Ultrabook in a 10.6" tablet's clothing. The Surface Pro 2 keeps the very sharp 1920 x 1080 touch panel with Wacom digitizer and pen, but it upgrades to a 4th generation Intel Haswell CPU, thereby doubling battery life. The VaporMg casing is still lovely and sturdy and you can now get Surface Pro 2 with up to 8 gigs of RAM and bigger SSD drives. The Touch Cover 2 and Type Cover 2 are improved significantly as well.
