More details for the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/293442==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/09/04/surface.pro.to.see.haswell.windows.rt.version.upgr aded.to.tegra.4/" rel='nofollow'>upcoming refresh</a> of the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/293443==http://www.electronista.com/reviews/microsoft-surface-with-windows-rt.html" rel='nofollow'>Microsoft Surface</a> have appeared, with reports suggesting it to have a 1080p display. The new specification rumors come at the same time as Microsoft starts issuing invitations to members of the media for a Surface-related event on September 23 in New York City, likely for the launch of the Surface 2. <br />
<br />
The Surface RT 2 will be powered by a Tegra 4 processor, according <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/293444==http://winsupersite.com/windows-rt/surface-2-details-emerge" rel='nofollow'>to</a> <em>WinSuperSite</em>, something which was hinted at in other reports in <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/293445==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/08/09/nvidia.tegra.4.set.to.make.an.appearance.in.surfac e.rt.2/" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">early August</a>. It will also have a two-step style kickstand. Using a 10.6-inch ClearType display, it will have a weight of 1.5 pounds, 0.37 inches for a thickness, a battery that will last for up to eight hours, microSD card expansion, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, and front and rear cameras. Windows RT 8.1 will be pre-installed, along with Office Home & Student 2013 RT, and there will also be a white color option. <br />
