Got a new or replacement Surface Pro 2 from Microsoft(s msft) to kick off the new year? Check the chip inside and you may find a holiday treat in the form of a slightly faster Intel Core i5 processor. In a statement to The Verge, Microsoft confirmed what at least one Microsoft Surface community forum member noticed in his replacement device: A 1.9 GHz Core i5 4300 chip in place of the 1.6 GHz Core i5 4200. On Microsoft’s Surface Pro 2 product page, the exact chip is never specified; instead, the company says its tablet comes with a “4th generation Intel Core i5 Processor.”

I am not an Apple person by any means but this will not motivate me to sell my iPad Mini and buy a Surface. Sorry, Microsoft!
