Overview

Microsoft have taken the Surface 2, increased the screen size an reduced the weight making it a leading example of tablet engineering. The 12-inch, 800 gram tablet won't be aimed at casual users but with the included digitizer it will appeal to creative types. Pricing matches its pro-level specifications. Starting at $799 it's 'accessible' but if you're looking at 8GB RAM, Core i5 and 128GB of SSD you'll be forced to take the 256GB model at $1299. Great engineering and a perfect device for a lot of creatives but not exactly your mainstream laptop-replacement, especially as similar performance can be had in an Ultrabook for a much lower price.

Microsoft Surface Pro, 10.6", 907gm
Microsoft's Surface Pro is likely to give the tablet category a good boost through the marketing and branding and this version of the Surface will be a true desktop-capable device. At 900gm it's one of the lightest Core-based tablets and the 10.1" screen also makes it highly portable. A digitiser layer, FULLHD resolution and keyboard accessories only make it more interesting. We'd have preferred to see a full size SD card slot although the SDXC slot will be useful in expanding storage space.
