Microsoft yesterday showed its Surface 2 tablet computer (click here for our hands-on video). While it may run the lesser-preferred (by power users, at least) Windows RT, albeit in 8.1 form, Microsoft has some significant improvements in this new model. The hardware in particular is much nicer, with a thinner and lighter magnesium casing. Nvidia provides the main SoC with its Tegra 4, which we had fun with in the Nvidia Shield.
The main display gets a considerable resolution boost, now sharing the same full HD panel that's also in the Surface Pro 2. Storage and memory capacity is a bit more modest than full Windows 8.1 bigger brother, however, with 32GB and 64GB SSDs as options and 2GB RAM standard.
We had a chance to take a bit of a closer look of the guts inside the Surface 2. Check out our videos and photos below:
