Microsoft Surface Windows 8 Pro Vs Microsoft Surface Windows RT

Surface Windows 8 pro

Microsoft’s Windows 8 Surface Pro or Surface Pro is a smart ultra portable tablet designed with the core windows OS. It is an upgrade of the earlier hybrid OS, the Microsoft Surface Windows RT. The initial development of the Windows RT came with some flaws, which the Surface Pro addresses. And with the Microsoft Windows 8 Pro 2 on the way, we cannot but expect something better.

Some users have argued that the Windows Surface Tablet has some pros and cons so I decided to pitch them against each other. Below you will find a break down, I will also provide more information about the Microsoft Windows 8 Surface Pro.

 Microsoft Surface Pro Vs Ipad

The Surface pro combines the features of a regular pc and a tablet making it a super ultra book, ipads still rely solely on apps to function effectively. Microsoft Surface Pro can be  compared to the MAC Book and others for better judgement and ratings.

Surface Pro 2

This is still in works, it is believed the new version will come with the following features and accessories.

1. Longer battery life

2. Lighter and slimmer body

3. Docking stations

4. Bundled keyboard cover

5. Lower price


7. Cellular Data

8. Full version of Microsoft Office

9. 2 USB Ports

10. Increased storage

and may be a core i7. The new version might be called surface plus.

Surface Pro Battery Life

There are suggestions that Microsoft will include an extra battery on the keyboard cover of the tablet. With the need for extended battery life the company is avoiding having a bulky battery. This will be against the essence of having an Ultra book. With the consumption rate of power by the Surface Pro, there is a need to have an additional accessory to match the power usage. And any suggestion to reduce power consumption will also be welcomed.

Microsoft Surface Pro is currently available to UK customers

With the latest price cut for US customers this August, this opportunity will not extend to the UK customers until Microsoft decides otherwise. A review will be expected soon. Microsoft store in the UK or has stock of the Windows 8 Surface Pro.
