1 Testing conducted by Microsoft in March 2015 using 64 GB and 128 GB units with 4 GB RAM. Testing consisted of full battery discharge during video playback. All settings were default except: Wi-Fi was associated with a network and Auto-Brightness was disabled. Battery life varies significantly with settings, usage, and other factors.

2 System software uses significant storage space. Available storage is subject to change based on system software updates and apps usage. 1 GB = 1 billion bytes. See Surface.com/storage for more details.

3 Maximum display output from the Mini DisplayPort depends on the refresh rate and the screen resolution. For more info, see Connect Surface Pro to a TV, monitor, or projector.

Coverage, service, and 4G LTE are not available everywhere.
