Microsoft Surface Vs Microsoft Surface Pro
Who wins the battle? It purely depends on the user because both the version has its own advantage and disadvantage. The disadvantage of Microsoft Surface Pro version is that it delivers almost half the battery life compared to the Microsoft Surface. The reason is its high end hardware specification. But the advantage is that it capable of running any application that can be run on a Windows 7 desktop system which is not possible in Microsoft Surface tablet. Both the tablets come with 1-year limited hardware warranty.
If you are a casual user Microsoft Surface is highly enough. If you want to run high end applications the Pro version gives the way. The Microsoft Surface 32GB and 64GB is already available for $499 and 699$ respectively. The 64GB version includes a touch cover(ultra slim keyboard which can be used with both Microsoft Surface and Microsoft Surface Pro).
The Surface Pro 64GB and 128GB version is priced for $899 and $999 respectively, but without the touch cover.
