Microsoft Surface Pro 2 updated on the sly, now includes faster Intel chip
Based on recent Geekbench scores, it would appear that the change was made last month. A Surface Pro 2 owner, who had a problem with his slate following a firmware update, exchanged his tablet for a new one and noticed the change. Besides the faster speed, the newer chip also includes Intel Trusted Execution Technology, which offers enhanced software security.
The reason behind Microsoft's decision to replace the original processor on the Microsoft Surface Pro 2 is unknown, but the updated slates are just hitting stores right about now.

I forget what year it was when Apple did something similar with its products. Two months later the product was upgraded causing a whole fiasco with its customer base and Apple if I remember correctly was giving credits or a promotion to customers who bought the product at launch.
This makes sense why Microsoft kepts its mouth shut. However I just have a bad taste in my mouth when a company does this. This is why I wait and I don't buy products when they come out. Anyway, I love my note 10.1 2014 edition. Anybody know of any s pen supported roms
