Microsoft’s Surface Pro tablet will arrive in Januaryof next year with an $899 price tag. The Surface Pro is the more powerful version of the Surface RT. It features an Intel Core i5 processor and 1080p HD display. The Pro will run the full version of Windows 8, not like the Surface RT which had Windows RT installed. That means it will be able to run all of the legacy Windows apps that a full laptop or desktop has access to — something that the RT version is not capable of.
Included in the price is also a Surface Pen but not a Touch or Type Cover. The tablet includes a USB 3.0 port and a Mini DisplayPort, which can drive a screen of up to 2560 x 1440 resolution. The Pro version is a little heavier and thicker than the RT model, but Microsoft notes that it is still under two pounds and less than 14mm thick.
A 64GB model will cost $899, while a 128GB edition will be available for $999. Which one will you choose? 🙂
