The Microsoft Surface Pro 2 Teardown Review
Sony VAIO Tap 11 vs. Microsoft Surface Pro 2 Comparison Smackdown

7 Reasons For

Good Brand

We calculated the average reviews for all Microsoft tablets and also specifically for Microsoft i5-4200U processor tablets and found that in both cases Microsoft had good reviews.

Very Large Internal Memory

Across all the tablets that have been available for around the same time as the Surface Pro 2 the internal memory range from 4GB to 8GB. The internal memory of the Surface Pro 2 of 8 gigabytes is one of the largest amongst tablet computers that are a comparable age to the Surface Pro 2.

Chart Edit

Very Big Total Storage Capacity

The smallest total storage capacity of similar spec tablets that are a comparable age to the Surface Pro 2 is 4GB, the biggest is 260GB, and the average total storage capacity is 42GB. When compared to other tablet computers that were released more than two years ago that we have assessed, the total storage capacity of the Surface Pro 2 of 256 gigabytes is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

Very Large Solid-State Drive Capacity

The average solid-state drive capacity of comparable spec tablets that have been on the market for around the same time as the Surface Pro 2 is 110GB, and the solid-state drive capacities range from 8GB to 260GB. When compared to other tablet computers that were released around the same time as the Surface Pro 2, the solid-state drive capacity of the Microsoft Surface Pro 2 of 256 gigabytes is one of the largest.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

The widths of similar spec tablets that have been on the market for around the same time as the Surface Pro 2 range from 270mm to 310mm, and the average width is 290mm. At only 274.5 millimeters, the Surface Pro 2 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other comparable spec tablet computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Surface Pro 2.

Chart Edit

Quite Large Maximum Memory Card Size

Across all the tablets that have been around for more than two years the maximum memory card sizes range from 16GB to 130GB. At 64 gigabytes, the Microsoft Surface Pro 2 has a fairly large maximum memory card size compared to most of the other tablet computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Thin

The thinnest thickness of i5-4200U processor tablets that have been on the market for around the same time as the Surface Pro 2 is 13mm and the thickest is 200mm. With a thickness of only 13 millimeters, the Surface Pro 2 has one of the thinner thicknesses amongst i5-4200U processor tablets of this age.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Not 4G Compatible

The Surface Pro 2 is not 4G compatible, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec tablets that were released around the same time as the Surface Pro 2 are also not 4G compatible.

Chart Edit

Not 3G Compatible

Most similar spec tablets that are a comparable age to the Surface Pro 2 are not 3G compatible. The Surface Pro 2 is no exception to this as it too is not 3G compatible.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Rear Camera Resolution

The Surface Pro 2 has one of the lower rear camera resolutions (only 1.2 megapixels) amongst similar spec tablets of this age. Across all the tablets of a comparable age and spec to the Surface Pro 2 the rear camera resolutions range from 0.3MP to 13MP.

If you would prefer a higher rear camera resolution then you might want to look at the 3Q RC1019G[plb_2419268_price] (2MP), or the GOCLEVER Quantum 700M[plb_2370792_price] (2MP).

Chart Edit

Only 1280 X 720 Pixels Rear Camera Resolution

The biggest rear camera resolution of the Surface Pro 2 is 1280 x 720 pixels. That's 56% less rear camera resolution than a 1920 x 1080 pixels tablet, which is the most frequently found rear camera resolution. Tablets that are a comparable age to the Surface Pro 2 rear camera resolutions range from 640 x 480 pixels to 3288 x 2472 pixels.

Chart Edit

Very Small Screen Size

The Microsoft Surface Pro 2 has a quite small screen size (only 10.6 inches) compared to most of the other tablet computers of a similar type and age to the Surface Pro 2. The screen sizes of tablet computers of a similar spec and age to the Surface Pro 2 range from 10" to 13", and the average screen size is 11".

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 10.6" tablet computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the Microsoft Surface Pro 2[plb_1630450_price].

4 Other reasons to consider the Microsoft Surface Pro 2

Released Over Three Years Ago

Average Internal Storage Capacity

At 256 gigabytes, the Surface Pro 2 has a pretty typical internal storage capacity compared to most of the other tablets of a comparable age and spec to the Surface Pro 2.

Chart Edit

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 1.6 gigahertz, the Microsoft Surface Pro 2 has a pretty typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec tablet computers that are a similar age to the Surface Pro 2.

We compared this tablet to all the other 1.6GHz processor clock speed tablets and we think because of it's better review score, the Microsoft Surface Pro 2[plb_1630450_price] is also worth considering.

Two Processor Cores

Compared to the other six tablets of this spec and age that we have assessed the number of processor cores of, the number of processor cores on the Surface Pro 2 is two which is average.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 2 processor core tablet computers currently available including the Microsoft Surface Pro 2[plb_1630450_price] which has better reviews.
