Throw in Microsoft's own hone brewed ClearType rendering technology as well, it's able to deliver great details to even the finest of text – so there's plenty of sharpness and clarity to it.

Reviews Word on the street

Surface Pro 2  vs Yoga 10 

The 1,920 by 1080 resolution is great for movies (and means you'll keep the DPI and zoom settings up, because while text is crisp, clear and smooth it can also be a little small on the 10.6-inch screen).
