What you are looking at is Microsoft's Surface Pro 2, which went on sale last month with the grand tagline: "the first device that is a tablet, a laptop and a high powered work station." That's a bit rich for our liking - "work station" is not the way we'd describe it - but the Surface Pro 2 is still impressive on paper. With its distinctive "Kickstand", the hardware design is better than some (no cheap-looking "chrome" here) and the previous model earned high marks in reviews, except for battery life. That's been improved in this model. There's an Intel Core i5 CPU, up to 512GB of storage and now there's a special keyboard (the Power Cover) you can buy with an extra battery inside it. All this doesn't come cheap: The cheapest Surface Pro 2 has 64GB storage and costs $1,019. With the cheapest keyboard it costs $1,158.99 (its cheaper brother the Surface 2 starts at $529). We've recently had a play with one, and noticed a few interesting things about it. Click the next photo to see what it looks like up close.
