Verge score: 7.8

While it looks similar to the original Surface Pro, Microsoft is calling the Surface Pro 2 the most "most powerful, professional, and productive tablet ever made." The tablet has a new two-stage kickstand to make using the tablet more comfortable, and runs Windows 8.1 on one of Intel's new Haswell processors. The Surface Pro 2 works with an optional power cover keyboard that has a built in battery and with a docking station that adds some extra ports.
