Special offer

Product information

Thinner, lighter and faster, with a stunning new Full HD screen, the Surface 2 is great for work and play. Running Windows 8.1 RT, Surface 2 comes with Microsoft Office Home and Student RT Edition, giving you access to your favourite Office apps out of the box, as well as thousands more to download from the Microsoft Store, including Xbox, music, movie, games and social networking apps. It also comes with subscriptions to SkyDrive and the Best of Skype, helping you get the most of your tablet as soon as you turn it on.

Key Features:

  • Super thin with a depth of just 8.9mm, Surface 2 is a thinner, lighter, yet still robust tablet, making it perfect to carry with you or slip into a bag while you travel. The VaporMg casing with a magnesium finish delivers excellent protection with a sophisticated look.

  • The 10.6", 16:9 display features a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels, giving you a stunning Full HD picture, with 50% more accurate colours than in the previous model. The speakers have been improved too, so you can enjoy HD movies with immersive sound.

  • Use your Surface 2 on your lap or on a desk with no additional accessories, thanks to the improved kickstand. The kickstand is able to be placed at two angles, ensuring you a great view from any position.

  • Surface 2 is equipped with front and rear-facing LifeCam cameras to give you great quality photos and videos and crisp images when video calling on Skype. The front facing webcam features 3.5 megapixels spread over a 1/3" sensor, for a high quality image, even in low light, while the 5 megapixel rear camera is great for snapping high resolution photos and videos. 2 microphones also ensure that friends and family get the best sound possible over web chats.

  • Surface 2 features connectivity options normally found in larger, bulkier machines. A superfast USB 3.0 port will enable you to connect USB 2.0 and 3.0 devices, whether it's an external hard drive or a mouse, while HD video out will let you plug your Surface into an HD TV to share content with others on a big screen. A micoSDXC port will also give you the option of increasing storage space on your Surface and transferring data from microSD compatible devices much faster and quicker than with a cable.

  • A battery life of up to 10 hours will keep Surface 2 going all day without needing to plug in to recharge.

  • Surface comes with a 2 year subscription to SkyDrive, giving you 200GB's of cloud storage for free. SkyDrive can automatically sync your files and folders, saving them to the cloud as well as on your Surface, giving you access to them anywhere in the world. SkyDrive also gives you access to the Microsoft Office Web Apps, so you can create and edit documents, spreadsheets, Powerpoint presentations and OneNote files on the go.

  • You'll also be given a year's subscription to Skype's Unlimited World Calling package for free calls to landlines in over 60 countries and unlimited Skype Wi-Fi at over 2 million hotspots in airports, hotels, train stations and cafés worldwide.

  • Keyboard Sold Separately.

Faulty Product I recently bought a surface 2 and it was posted to me, so when I got it in the post, and turned it on, it said 'No Battery Detected' and would not turn on without the power cable being plugged in. As soon as you pulled the plug out, it would just go dead. Quite disappointing. 24 September 2014
Ideal traveling machine Used for site working, meetings, notes, reports etc. This machine is very portable and light, the charge seems to be holding well and the packaged software works as per the office pc's so no issues at all. Very clear and good screen quality. Works well with the accessory keyboard. Camera good for Skype etc. as well as general photos for reports. 09 July 2014
Really useful product Originally got a surface 2 in November 2013 because it is both functional and is comparability with my PC. However, could not get it to start, neither could the technical team. Exchanged for another one which also failed to work. Exchanged it for an iPad (very easy to use) but it has limitations regarding office applications so went back to Surface 2. Third time lucky. It has the added USB and SD connections. Brilliant as I can download docs from PC. Now that it has been set up and fully running, I find it is very useful and easy to use. The separate typing key board is brilliant as I can touch type Am really attached to it. Carry it with me all the time, it is very light. It is a timely purchase as the XP software support for my PC is being discontinued from April. 25 March 2014
I love it! Makes windows 8 a great opperating system This is what windows 8 (all be it, this is the RT version) is all about. This can be used as both a laptop and a tablet, is easy to use and once mastered windows 8 is brilliant. The response on the touchscreen is great, and the keyboard (I have the type) is great too. Everyone complains about the limited apps, but even the number of these are growing. I could not ask for a better device for having a laugh, doing a bit of work and keeping organised. I would honestly recommend this to anyone! I love this!!! 15 February 2014
disapointing kept locking up, reset then it worked fine , then wouldn't respond to anything had to reset everytime to use 21 January 2014
Excellent Tablet This is a pleasure to hold and the screen is beautiful. Battery life is comparable to iPad under heavy use. The bundled office is fantastic, and covers most of the needs of someone doing an arts degree such as English etc. The app store is easy to navigate and the big name apps are slowly moving over. Its a shame it doesn't have the digitiser support like in the pro range, but nonetheless is an excellent tablet; the best I've ever used. Highly recommend buying it. 15 November 2013
