What's the difference between the Microsoft Surface 2 and the Microsoft Surface Pro 2

Besides the price, of course.


"Microsoft announced Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 on September 23, 2013 at an event in New York City. While chiefly maintaining its original design, Surface 2 is powered by a 1.7 GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 4 system-on-chip and sports a 10.6-inch 1080p display. Surface Pro features a fourth generation Intel Core i5 processor for increased battery life. Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 promise big improvements in display, both using 10.6” ClearType Full HD display with 1920x1080p and 16:9 widescreen. Surface 2 (RT) will now also include a full-size USB 3.0 port. Both Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 were released on October 22, 2013"

Apart from price, the Surface 2 is slightly thinner, offers (optionally) 64Gb of storage instead of being limited to 32Gb, has better cameras both in front and back, better battery life, and has a USB 3.0 port instead of USB 2.0. It’s a better tablet all around.
