Surface Pro or Pro 2?

#1MassiveFluddPosted 11/17/2013 4:14:17 PM(edited)
so i can get the 64gb pro 2 for about 810 or the pro for about 620, but my question is what is the big difference between the two? I need something that can go for about 4-5 hours. work will be like word/excel and for personal will be like surfing the web, watching videos, and extremely light gaming.

any reason why i should spend the extra and get the pro 2?

i would like something quick and snappy, so i was also looking at the dell venue 11, but it uses the atom chip or something like that. any info on that would be helpful as well

Pro 2 have a haswell processor that increased the battery life by a LOT, that is the biggest reason to get the new model.

Pro 2 will last 7 to 8 hours.

For me, I'd pay the difference. But then, I also wouldn't get the 64GB model. With the Windows 8 installation you're only going to have like 40GB or less left
