The original Surface Pro and Surface RT both featured a 10.6-inch screen, but the Pro's was a vibrant 1080p display whereas the RT's was a relatively lackluster 1366-by-768-pixel resolution. The Surface Pro 2 and Surface 2 are no longer differentiated by display quality; they will both use the same 1080p screen. Microsoft VP Panos Panay, who introduced the refreshed Surfaces on Monday, said the new screen renders colors almost 50% more accurately than the one in the current Surface Pro.

re: Microsoft Surface: 10 Best And Worst Changes
Are these changes going to do anything for the first tablets that rolled out? Will Microsoft let us upgrade by buying our old units back so we can get the new ones?
