Surface Pro 2 Review: A Little Bit Better, But So Much the Same

The original Surface Pro was many things, but chief among them was strange. Not only did it deftly—if not quite perfectly—straddle the line between tablet and laptop, but it also straddled the line between futurist ideal and problematic product. This time around the Surface Pro 2 is packing plenty of practical improvements, but as a concept it's still on shaky ground. Read More >>

Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 Hands On: The Same (In a Good Way)

The first thing to notice about the actual Surface tablets is how similar they are both to each other and to last year's models. Aside from the Surface 2's eye-catching coat of white, the tablets both feel almost physically identical to their predecessors. That's a good thing; the well-angled bezels and overall high-quality feeling of the hardware was one of our favourite parts about both of the two Surfaces. Read More >>

Microsoft's New Surface Tablets: The Upgrade Is on the Inside

About this time last year, Microsoft made some damn big promises about ushering in the future of computing. One year and two Surfaces later the future Microsoft's been dreaming of isn't quite here. Maybe the second time's the charm. Read More >>

Microsoft Will Announce the Surface 2 on September 23rd

Microsoft just sent out invitations for an event in New York City on Monday September 23rd, two weeks from today. It will be showing off the new Surface. Which is to say, it's going to be showing us the future of Microsoft. Read More >>

How to Set Up Your Microsoft Surface Pro Just Right

At long last. Microsoft's giant tablet-shaped gamble has come to our sunny shores. With Windows 8 being new to many people, and the Surface needing a helluva lot of tweaking to fulfil its (buttloads of) potential, we thought we'd put together a guide to spare you the pain of working it out for yourself.

Microsoft, We Really Need a Proper HiDPI Mode For Windows

If you ever needed a reason to spit out a proper hidpi mode, Microsoft, now you have one. Your very own Microsoft Surface Pro's 10-inch 1080p screen makes UI elements too small to be truly useable, but now Samsung's spat a 13.3-inch laptop display with an insane 3200x1800 resolution. That's an Apple Retina Display-beating 276.05ppi. 50 more pixels per inch than the Surface Pro. Read More >>

Microsoft Surface Pro Launching Here on May 23

Microsoft's higher-end tablet dream will be available in the UK next week, with Microsoft giving the folding tab a May 23 launch date. The Surface Pro will cost a stonking great £719 for the 64GB Core i5 Windows 8 machine, rising to £799 if you'd prefer the 128GB unit. You might want to read our Surface Pro review before investing that sort of life-changing sum in a thing to use to look at Twitter. [Microsoft Store] Read More >>

The Microsoft Surface Pro Is Finally Coming to the UK

We've waited long enough. After getting Microsoft's Surface RT late, we're finally going to get its bigger brother, the fully-fledged Surface Pro, but not until the end of May. Well, before the end of May, but that normally means May 31st. Is it too much future too soon? We can't wait to find out for ourselves. [Microsoft] Read More >>

The Microsoft Surface Pro Running OS X Must Have Steve Jobs Turning in His Grave

It's just a more-or-less just a standard PC in a tablet frame, so of course the Surface Pro can probably run OS X -- almost any modern X86-based PC can these days. But should you run OS X on the Microsoft Surface Pro? One intrepid hackintosher seemingly decided to give it a whirl. Read More >>

Surface Pro Teardown: Don't Dream of Taking This Thing Apart

Microsoft's Surface Pro may only have been released last week in the US, but iFixit has already torn it apart. Perhaps unsurprisingly, you don't wanna think about repairing or upgrading this thing, period. Read More >>

Which One Has More Usable Space: the 128GB Surface Pro or the 128GB MacBook Air?

Everyone's been making fun of the Surface Pro for being so stingy on hard drive space. The 128GB version of the Surface Pro only has 90GB of free space (originally reported to be 83GB but since boosted). Where the hell did the other 38 gigs go? Well, you could ask the same question to the 128GB version of the MacBook Air. The MBA only has 92GB of free space. What! Read More >>

Microsoft Should Have Made a Laptop

Whatever you think about Microsoft's Surface Pro, it's impossible to deny its beautiful design, and the quality of the the tech behind it. It's a siren, luring you into an oddly metaphored whirlpool of unsure typing. I've been using it for close to two weeks now, and the entire time I couldn't escape one feeling: Microsoft should have made a laptop. Read More >>

Microsoft Surface Pro Review: Too Much Future?

The Microsoft Surface was the biggest new tech of 2012. Its first iteration — Surface RT, a confusingly named and marketed tablet-with-a-keyboard — bombed. Pretty hard. So why believe in the full-powered Surface Pro? Simple. It's a braver and more divergent take on the laptop-tablet convergence than anyone else has risked so far. Read More >>

If You Thought Just 83GB Out of the 128GB Surface Pro Was Bad...

Oh dear Microsoft. I know you've slapped a microSD slot on your tablets, unlike others, but seriously. Having just 84GB of usable space on a 128GB-rated tablet was bad enough, but reducing a 64GB Surface Pro to just 23GB of usable space is a complete joke. This is a full-blown Windows 8 PC for crying out loud. [The Verge] Read More >>

"128GB" Microsoft Surface Pro Only Offers 83GB of Usable Space

The standard Windows 8 Surface tablets came in for some stick, thanks to the Windows files eating up 13GB of hard drive space. That's nothing compared to Windows 8 Pro, which requires an astonishing 45GB of the Surface Pro's disk space for its files. Read More >>

How Much Would You Actually Pay For Microsoft's Surface Pro?

Microsoft's finally announced release dates and prices for the Surface Pro with full-blown Windows 8 for the US and Canada. Sadly, the UK's fat out of luck for the time being, and the prices? Well, let's just say it's not going to come cheap. But how much is too much, for an all-singing, all-dancing Microsoft-made tablet-come-laptop? Read More >>
