3 Reasons For

With a total storage capacity of 64 gigabytes, the Microsoft Surface Pro 2 has a fairly big total storage capacity compared to most of the other tablet computers that have been around for around the same time as the Surface Pro 2.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Battery Recharge Time

4 Reasons Against
