Microsoft Surface 2 Full Review
      #45574 - 11/05/13 03:48 PM

The Microsoft Surface 2 is a difficult product to classify: in some ways it's Windows complete with the desktop UI, but it's Windows minus the 3rd party desktop apps. Some folks want full Windows or nothing, while others are looking for a low maintenance, virus resistant and quick tablet that's familiar (assuming Windows 8 is familiar) and has the power of Microsoft's explorer file manager and USB 3.0 port.

Though Surface 2 looks the same as the first gen Surface RT other than the change to a silver color, inside much has been improved. It has an excellent 1920 x 1080 display, upgraded cameras and a faster NVIDIA Tegra 4 CPU with faster graphics. Windows RT 8.1 has smoothed the performance kinks and the tablet runs swiftly. Is that enough to bring the Microsoft Surface 2 to mainstream adoption? Read our review to find out.
