It was originally scheduled for 90 days after the the Surface RT and Windows 8 became available, and it looks like Microsoft is on target to make that happen. Today they announced pricing for the Surface Pro – like the RT, but powered by Intel with more memory, more storage, and running Windows 8 Pro. It’s a little thicker, and a little heavier, but you’ll have all the power that many laptops have today, in a 14mm thick, 2 lb tablet with a 10 point touch screen. I’m sure you can see the appeal of the Surface Pro.
The Surface Pro starts with 64GB for $899, or you can step up to 128GB for $999. Both version will come with a Surface pen for note taking, and of course they will also function with either of the Surface keyboards – Touch or Type (sold separately). The exact day of availability is expected to be at the end of January, but Microsoft didn’t disclose any details around this today. They also didn’t mention any details about if or when you could expect pre-orders to start. You can read the entire announcement over at the Microsoft Blog, or check out the Surface Pro on Surface.com.
