I was leaning towards the HP for the processor.. but the much lower battery life and lower max resolution is a killer. Opinions? :/

I guarantee you the surface 2 is better constructed

the surface has a higher clock rate CPU, and a higher clocked GPU (with probably more cores)

The HP has 2 more cores, but no turbo feature, and no hyperthreading

Well, I'll check out the links in the morning when works slow, but it sounds like the Surface is worth the extra $400.

On a side note.. I'm less than excited that the Surface Pro 2 requires you purchase they keyboard.. but it is good to know if I spend a bit more there's a backlit keyboard option.

Got a surface pro 2 and the only thing I don't like about it is the price.

Cost aside, definitely the Surface Pro 2.
I'm not sure why you were leaning toward the HP for its processor, it's inferior to the one in the Surface Pro 2.

Oh I see. And I take it you definitely want an x86 tablet (a.k.a. a regular laptop with a touchscreen instead of a keyboard) ?

I have a laptop, this is more just a tablet to reading, Netflix and relaxing.
