Microsoft Surface 2 10.6" Tablet 32GB Windows RT 8.1 - Silver is rated out of 5 by 263.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ariel from Great Windows Device! This is exactly what I need when I'm on the road. It's lightweight, responsive, and it has the ultimate productivity app (Microsoft Office). The 1080p screen is nice -- it's nice enough that I don't miss the retina display of my ipad 3 even when I'm reading an e-book. The "type cover" is also as comfortable to use as a full size keyboard. So far, the only hardware issue I have with this is its anemic speaker (my iphone 5 sounds better when playing music) -- it's usable but the "tinny" sound is obvious. As far as apps go, it has all the apps I need right now, but it could definitely benefit for having more available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by aeonrydre from It has Miracast support I took a chance on the new Surface 2. For my work flow, it is very important that I connect wirelessly to our boardroom display. We have an office tablet that supports WiDi, but I wanted my own for personal use as well. I had scoured reviews for information on wireless display support, but nothing confirmed it. I asked Microsoft support, and again no confirmation. However, I tried it this morning at work, and it works really well - a little lag, but not an issue for work use or content streaming. Overall, I am very happy with my new Surface 2 - it's a great balance for work and personal use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by crwd3020 from Does what my iPad could never dream of. I traded in my iPad for the Surface 2. I am so glad I did!!!! Sure there are not as many apps for the Surface as the iPad, however that is the only downside. I can now print wirelessly or wired to almost any printer. I can run apps side by side. Office is amazing and has a better track record of being updated more often than iWork. I get double the storage for the similar price range. I can use a mouse. Bing smart search is the best. So if you want a pretty light and thinner iPad, enjoy. If you want the most productive tablet out there, go with the Surface 2. I am very glad that I left the "cool" group of Apple to actually become more productive with Microsoft.

Rated 1 out of 5 by PabloM from I'm sure it would've been awesome had it worked I bought this last week and it was listed "Like New" so I thought I got an amazing deal! Upon receiving the item, it looked good, but once I turned it on it was locked. The tablet was still showing the previous owner's log in information and as if that wasn't bad enough, when I disconnected it from the outlet it turned off. It turns out that it can only stay on if it's plugged in. I am extremely disappointing with this purchase and I wish this transaction had gone differently. I don't understand how something like that got past their inspection team for an item that was "like new".

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maxwell from Love mine! I bought this a week back now and I have to say I love it. Its so speedy. Web pages open instantly. The Tegra 4 is really a beast of a processor and the battery life is great too. The ability to view apps side by side is awesome. I can check my email while I watch youtube videos. I don't understand the criticism about it not running legacy apps. People don't say the same thing about IPADs not being able to run MAC OS apps. With that said the Microsoft store still lacks a few apps but I think that will come in the long run. IE is surprisingly very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by goosehead from Great tablet for business travel! I bought my Surface 2 64 three months ago, it's a great traveling companion. I was able to replace a corporate laptop and personal iPad with this one device. The included Office 365 (RT) does everything my laptop did, in a much more convenient form factor. It's also great for internet, books, movies, and music, replacing the iPad which doesn't do much else. My only complaint is it occasionally freezes, I think related to frequent software updates. Easily fixed (hold the power switch for ~10 seconds, then restart), but still a bit annoying. We have since added two more Surface tablets in my family. Looks like I have a used iPad for sale :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by lisa2 from Battery doesn't work :( I ordered the Surface 2 & the battery didn't work! I installed all updates, performed all troubleshoot suggestions from Microsoft's website, and it still wouldn't work without the power cord plugged in... it could never recognize the battery. I exchanged it for another Surface 2, and the replacement did the exact same thing (didn't recognize the battery and couldn't charge)! Needless to say, I'm highly dissatisfied with the Surface 2. Silly me expected the tablet to actually work when I received it, but instead I wasted many hours trying to update, troubleshoot, and exchange/return it :( I would NOT recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SpEcKoNe from in love So I'm a big apple geek, love everything apple, but I saw a commercial for the Nokia windows tablet and was curious, well that led me to the surface one, reviews weren't all that great, but I than ran into the surface 2, read the reviews and asked my wife for it for Xmas, it was sold out, we didn't review it till the 1st of January, and I must say, I take this tablet with me everywhere and use it more than my iPhone 5 and ended up giving my mac book pro to my wife, this thing is sweet, finally back into nmicrosoft again because of my surface 2 :)
