Hands on with Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2: Second verse, same as the first
When creating the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2, Microsoft’s ambition was not to reinvent the device but simply to make it better. The company is committed to the basic Surface concept of a tablet with a kickstand and detachable keyboard, and the second generation devices do nothing to shake up that formula. Like before, the goal is to make tablets that are highly productive.
Aesthetically, the devices look extremely similar to their predecessors. On the Pro version, the only obvious change is the logo on the back. Where before there was a Windows logo, there’s now a Surface logo.
