  • Like the Surface 2, the Microsoft Surface Pro 2 kickstand kicks out at two angles: one of desk use, and the other for lap placement. While it seems laughable to have a kickstand dedicated for when the device is a literal laptop, it’s hard to deny its utility. In both settings, the kickstand creates a very stable prop for the Surface Pro 2, and even kicks out and tucks in with a satisfying click. It’s also very solid, and likely to last the life of the device.

  • The Microsoft Surface Pro 2 is a worthy follow up to our former Editors' Choice, the Microsoft Surface Windows 8 Pro. It improves performance and battery life, while keeping the form factor and wide accessory catalog the first-gen Surface Pro had going for it. More power, better performance, and longer battery life for the same (initial) price tag make the Surface Pro 2 our Editors' Choice for Windows slate tablets.

    The Microsoft Surface Pro 2 ($999 list with 128GB storage, as tested) is the second-generation of last year's award-winning detachable slate . It has been updated with a fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor, but is otherwise similar to last year's model. Improved battery life, day-to-day performance, and benchmark scores means that it earns our Editors' Choice for Windows-based slate tablets.

    Let’s call the Microsoft Surface Pro 2 a notebook in a tablet’s body. After all, it has mainly notebook specs, including a notebook Intel Core processor (fourth generation, or Haswell), and it runs the full version of Windows 8.1 (Windows 8.1 Pro to be exact), not the watered-down Windows RT 8.1. It’s also expensive, starting at $900, or almost as much as four base-model tablets.
