Thurrott said the Surface Pro 2 will offer a choice of RAM, possibly 4 GB and 8 GB options. He added that the new Surface Pro will look identical to the current Surface Pro -- which makes sense, given Microsoft is expected to allow the same keyboard/covers to work with the new Surface models. And as far as the "refined" kickstand goes, Thurrott claims the new kickstand will offer two different positions, instead of being locked into one on the current Surface Pros.
Surface Pro 2 is expected to come with Windows 8.1 preinstalled. Like the first-generation Surface, it will offer users the ability to run existing desktop apps, as well as new Metro-Style/Windows Store apps.
I asked Microsoft officials if they'd comment on any of the new Surface leaks and, unsurprisingly, a spokesperson declined.
The new version of the ARM-based Surface will be called Surface 2, rather than Surface RT 2, Thurrott has reported. That updated tablet is expected to run an updated NVIDIA Tegra processor, according to source reports. Additional specs for the Surface 2 haven't leaked (yet).
