Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when this Microsoft tablet was released.

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 1.6 gigahertz, the Surface Pro 2 has a pretty typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other tablet computers of this age and spec.

Two Processor Cores

The number of processor cores on the Surface Pro 2 is two which is average compared to the other six i5-4200U processor tablets that have been around for around the same time as the Surface Pro 2 that we have assessed the number of processor cores of.

There are a number of other 2 processor core tablet computers currently available which you might also want to look at including the Microsoft Surface Pro 2[plb_1630450_price] which has better reviews.
