Microsoft Surface Pro 2 and Surface 2: all there is to know
Microsoft has announced the next step in the evolution of its Surface line of tablets. In case you're wondering, both the regular and the Pro models are alive and well, and will live on in the Surface 2 (running Windows RT) and Surface Pro 2 (running Windows 8 Pro).

So, what has Microsoft come up with this time in order to make us want its new tablets? Well, to tell you the truth, there have been slight improvements made in most areas, although it's safe to say that Redmond hasn't unveiled anything groundbreaking. For example, the Surface Pro 2 sports the new Intel Haswell CPU architecture, bringing performance and battery life improvements. In addition, there's going to be more storage, USB 3.0, two kickstand angles, etc. Meanwhile, the RT-powered Surface 2 will be thinner and lighter, and will also come with a much better, 1080p screen, among other improvements.
