Microsoft's Surface Pro 2 is the firm's second attempt at a hybrid device following the muted success of the original Surface Pro, which suffered because of its awkward design and poor battery life.
Although not a revolutionary upgrade, the Surface Pro 2 looks to solve some of those problems, continuing with the same full-HD display of the previous generation but bolstering performance and battery life with Intel Haswell architecture under the hood.
Furthermore, the simple addition of a dual-stage kickstand should be an attractive addition for taller individuals as well as those who want to use the device as a laptop. Sadly Microsoft still does not bundle any of its keyboard covers with the device, and these cost £100. With an up-front cost of £720 for the slate itself, potential buyers will have to take this into consideration.
