2 features a design and specs that are very similar to its predecessor. The beautiful and durable magnesium “VaporMg” case from the original tablet remains, though the kickstand design has been tweaked to support two viewing positions instead of one. There is still a full-size USB 3.0 port and a microSD slot for up to 64GB of additional removable storage beyond the in-built 64GB or 128GB.
Microsoft’s Surface 2 does feature a few big changes though, not the least of which is a new white color option that looks very nice up close. It also sports the same full HD 1080p display as the Pro 2 in place of the 1,366 x 768-pixel panel Microsoft used in the first-generation model, a Nvidia Tegra 4 processor that replaces the original Surface RT’s Tegra 3, and the updated Windows RT 8.1 operating system along with a full copy of Office (with Outlook) and unlimited free international calling with Skype.
The next generation Microsoft Surface is said to be thinner and lighter as well.
