Yesterday Microsoft announce the Surface Pro 3 and not a Surface Mini as widely rumoured and I thought I would put together some of the specs of the Surface range of devices. As you can see from the tablet below there seems little reason for purchasing a Surface Pro 2 now unless there are any discounts going forward. I think the Surface 2 still has a roll to play as a lower cost device and comes with Office 2013.

While the £639 prices seems good you are still going to have to shell out for a Type Cover which are just over £100.
