Description

The Surface Pro 2 has the same 10.6" 1920x1080 pixels ClearType display like its predecessor, but this time with 46% better color accuracy and record low reflectivity, nearly identical with the sRGB color gamut coverage. That is aimed at making it a device for professionals and screen purists alike, but also to make outdoor visibility better for the average user as well. The new Surface Pro 2 is equipped with the Haswell architecture of Intel's Core i5 processor, meaning it marks strides in battery life compared to its predecessor - 75% improvement, or between 7-10 hours, depending on the usage. The unit has also been made much quieter, though that still means you are likely to see a fan inside.
