Some Surface Pro 2 units shipping with wrong chipset. Microsoft announced its Surface Pro 2 tablet with a 1.6 GHz Intel Core i5-4200U processor but then decided that it will include a 1.9 GHz Intel Core i5-4300U processor instead two months later.
However, the Microsoft Store is non-committal as to the processor current customers will receive, merely referring to the Surface Pro 2′s CPU as a “4th generation Intel Core i5 Processor” – a description which could refer to either model.
But now that the device is shipping to users who have bought it it turns out that some (if not all) of them are getting the Surface Pro 2 with the initially-announced chip.
Reports are coming from alleged customers speaking to PC Pro UK and SlashDot. On its online store Microsoft just refers to the chipset as a fourth generation Intel processor.
According to one customer Microsoft representatives confirmed to her via phone that the tablet will feature the new processor. Upon receiving her order she saw that was not the case. According to her Microsoft has received a number of the same complaints but so far there hasn’t been an official statement from the company.
Microsoft intros an LTE version of the Surface 2, arrives tomorrow for $679 – There have been rumors about an LTE enabled Surface 2 for a while, and it seems like it’s finally hitting the market.
The LTE Surface 2 will come with 64GB of storage and supports 3G/4G LTE bands. It costs $679, which is $130 more than the Wi-Fi only 64GB Surface 2.
Even though the tablet is supposed to be used for AT&T, it should work on T-Mobile’s network as well, given that it supports LTE Bands 4,7, and 17, 3G UTMS 1,2, and 5, and 800/900/1800/1900MHz. You may not get 4G speeds with a T-Mobile card, so tossing in an AT&T micro SIM may be the best way to go.
Microsoft promises 10 hours of battery life with the Surface 2. If you’re interested in purchasing one, you can pick one up at a Microsoft store, either online or brick and mortar.
In any case, you can find the Surface 2 with LTE tomorrow at Microsoft Stores, MicrosoftStore.com and Best Buy (but not AT&T stores, oddly). Oh, and all those promotions Microsoft was offering back when the Surface 2 first launched? They still apply five months later on this LTE version. That means you can expect 200GB of free OneDrive storage for two years and a year of unlimited Skype WiFi calling and landline calls.
Microsoft’s second generation Windows 8.1 tablet-convertible laptop. The Pro 2 has a 10.6″ IPS full HD touch screen and an active digitizer with Wacom pen. It runs on the Intel Haswell 4th generation Core i5-4200U CPU with Intel HD 4400 graphics, and it’s available with 4 or 8 gigs of DDR3 RAM. The base model has a 64 gig SSD for $899, and you can get it with 128, 256 and 512 gig SSDs. Though small, the Surface Pro 2 has the power of an Ultrabook and it runs full Windows with support for traditional exe apps. Other features include much improved battery life, dual band WiFi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0 and dual 720p webcams
