1:27 /

Microsoft's revamped Windows RT tablet is thinner, lighter, and runs longer.

Hi, I'm Dan Ackman and we are here taking a look at the brand new Microsoft Surface 2. This is the second generation of Microsoft Windows RT Tablet and there is some pretty significant differences compared to the original Surface tablet. This new version- it's a little bit thinner, it's a little bit lighter. Physically, it's got this kick stand on the back-- you remember from the first time, but now it opens up to a second angle which makes it a little bit easier to use on your lap or if you're looking from a little bit higher up and of course you can click it back to the original angle like that as well. Inside, it's got the next generation of Nvidia Tegra processors and the screen has been updated. This is now a 1920 by 1080 screen and it's got- it's a more color accurate screen than the original surface. In fact, both the new Surface 2 and the Surface Pro 2 have the same upgraded screen. Now one of my favorite parts of the entire surface line is back and that's the keyboard covers. [unk] touch cover and a type cover- this is the new touch cover right here and it's actually thinner than the original and it's backlit. The type cover- it's also backlit, comes in a variety of colors, still snaps on just like this and then when you close it, you get a very compact package you can take with you. There's still webcams on the front and back. Those have been improved as well and you can now be able to get the new Surface 2 at the end of October starting at $449. I'm Dan Ackman and that is the Microsoft Surface 2.
