Pros

  • Ultrabook-like performance
  • Improved battery life from original Surface Pro
  • High-res, good quality 1920x1080 display
  • Very solid magnesium-alloy build
  • Dual-angle kickstand

Cons

  • 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)

Bottom Line

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.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

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.
