    Battery life is mediocre, but better than the pro. The App Store is getting better, but it can run real windows programs, so it is good. With the 4th generation i5, it is very fast, and with 8GB of ram, even playing games runs well, even in native 1080p! The display is pretty nice too, but wish it could be higher quality. My iPad's display is more vibrant. The speakers, also, are very loud and nice. Lastly, I love the dual position kickstand, it is very neat.

    While I don't have a SP2, not an iPad, from the store, I always found iPad display over-saturated. It's like it was calibrated to compete against people who have ****ty TN panels has their computer monitors.
    People get easily confused with saturation of colors and correctness. Surface Pro 2 display, looked fine when I saw it. But I would prefer to actually see images with it, and compare it with H-IPS display at home. Of course, I know it won't match it in terms of "best possible display of RAW images", as my monitor on my desktop is a wide gamut one, and due to the fact that the Surface Pro 2 uses white LED's, and not high grade CFL's or GB-LED or RGB-LED, which would make the device significantly thicker (like 2 or 3 times the thickness), not to mention eat battery like no tomorrow, especially the using CFL's (and not to mention heat).
