Microsoft Surface Pro pricing and availability announced

A month after the release of the Surface RT tablet, Microsoft has finally released information about the pricing and availability of the highly anticipated Surface Pro.

On the outside, the Surface Pro almost has the same look as the RT version so you still get the same VaporMg casing and its overly hyped kickstand. The inside, however, is totally different. The Surface Pro has a higher display resolution, an Intel processor to run regular desktop applications and a bigger RAM. Because of that, the Pro is thicker and heavier than the RT. Take a look at the comparison table below:

Now for the price, the Surface Pro has a price tag of $899 for the 64GB version and $999 for the 128GB and both will ship with a Surface pen. The Touch Cover and Type Cover are optional extras. The Surface Pro will be available in the US starting January of next year.

    Better the pro have discrete graphic option, and maybe an i7 with 256ssd.

      And what, get only an hour of battery life and raise the price by hundreds of dollars? An Ivy Bridge i5 is already plenty fast for the tasks that people are likely to use a Surface Pro for. If you want more power, go get a full laptop.

      No need. Microsoft is not expecting you to do gaming and designing on such a small screen size.

    They definitely need to make an AMD Fusion tablet, it would really take off in portable PC gaming :D

    “its overly hyped kickstand”

    The problem with MS is that they are overtly proud of this particular feature since they had it tested for consistency (thus the snapping sound ad) and usability without sacrificing much aesthetics (they wanted to do away with it because it would have ruined the overall feel of the VaporMG casing). In Apple’s world, it is what you would call attention to minute details worthy of praising the well-thought engineering that has been put into the device.

    Having read this I thought it was rather enlightening.
    I appreciate you taking the time and effort to put this content together.
    I once again find myself personally spending a significant amount of time both reading
    and posting comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  5. Should commentors wish to receive links then they might want to at least show the
    sense to write a thoughtful and considered comment.
    All comment spam will do is hurt your SEO attempts and
    generates useless backlinks. The only way to behave is to befriend
    fellow bloggers who have blogs of similar niche
    and generate totally targeted traffic by leaving a well thought response.

    You never know people might even read this prior to
    posting below me, Many thanks.
