Will i be making the right choice, the RT's still got 32gb storage, i know it's got the Tegra 3 cpu, is it still a 1.7 quad core....would i be as well going for the 2

I just watched a few vid comparisons and it (RT) doesn't look much slower

The Surface Pro 2 is x86, it runs full Windows and will run all Windows apps. The Surface RT only runs apps from the Windows Store, as well as the built in apps in Windows.

The Gen 1 Surface RT was a great Tablet, I used it for year. Depending on what you want to use it for it could be a great Tablet for you. But I stand by my assessment of the two as someone who has used both. But for the price of RT right now it is a great deal. Upgrade it to 8.1/RT and it is even better...

The Surface RT might as well not even have a camera its so bad. The Surface 2's camera is great.
Windows 8.1 is on both if you do the updates.
The Surface 2 has a lot better resolution and you notice it. The text is less jaggy and blocky.
The Surface 2 kickstand has 2 positions, the RT has 1.

It doesn't matter to everyone but I used the RT for about a week then took it back to Best Buy. All because of the resolution (and the weight and camera). If those don't matter to you then get the RT. I never had speed problems with it or thought it was slow.

Yes I know about the differences now, also looked a few vids where they've had the 8.1 upgrade. I think the RT would do me fine

Is it really just the cpu in the 2 that makes the speed difference, and is it that much for the home user
