Slated for debut in Januray, the Microsoft Surface Pro, running Windows 8 Pro will be available in two flavors: 64GB for $899 or 128GB for $999. The two versions will come with a Surface pen with Palm Block technology and support Microsoft’s Touch Cover or Type Cover, which cost $119.99 and $129.99 respectively.
The difference with this Pro version and the previously released RT version is that this one runs the full version of Windows 8. The RT also runs on the ARM processor, which isn’t exactly top notch. Apart from these two major differences, the RT version isn’t compatible with the majority of existing software made for Windows 7 and XP.
“Surface with Windows 8 Pro will run your current Windows 7 desktop applications – it’s a full PC AND a tablet,” Microsoft said. Supporting 1080p display the Surface Pro runs on an Intel Core i5 processor and comes with a full-sized USB 3.0 port.
