Microsoft Surface Pro 2 Windows tablet
- Ultrabook-like performance
- Improved battery life from original Surface Pro
- High-res, good quality 1920x1080 display
- Very solid magnesium-alloy build
- Dual-angle kickstand
- Still too heavy and thick for comfortable ‘tablet’ use
- Older Windows desktop applications don’t scale well to the high-density display
- Paint job is prone to scratches and marks
- Only one USB port, no SD card slot
- Not really suited to lap-top use (or other precarious perches)
A major improvement over the Surface Pro, but a few issues still leave it struggling for relevance among established tablet, netbook and laptop form factors.

PCW Evaluation Team
The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
