Say hello to the new Surface tablets with this awesome Microsoft advert

Microsoft has only recently unveiled both the Surface 2 and Surface 2 Pro Windows tablets, but already the company has released an advert showing off exactly what these new products can do. The above video explains why the Surface Windows tablets are worth checking out, and what an advert it is. "Not just a laptop, not just a tablet."

From the increased battery life all the way to the new Intel chips utilised, Microsoft is going all out when it comes to the second generation of its Windows tablets. When the original Surface tablets launched back in 2012, Microsoft emphasised how unique and fresh the products were (with a focus on movement), compared to the competition. It's clear with the second wave that we will see the company promote what improvements have been made.

If you're interested in the new Surface tablets, be sure to head on over to Microsoft's website to place a pre-order. As an incentive, remember the company is packing 200GB SkyDrive and free Skype calls with each Surface 2 and Surface 2 Pro.
