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.

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.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
