Surface Pro starts at $899

Microsoft originally told us that Surface Pro would bow in the January of this year, but it looks as though the Redmond, Washington-based company is running a bit behind schedule. Microsoft announced today that Surface Pro would actually launch on February 9 in the U.S. and Canada.
 
Unlike Surface RT, which runs Windows RT and lacks Windows software backwards compatibility due to its use of an ARM processor, Surface Pro can handle the entire Windows library thanks to Windows 8 Pro. The tablet packs in a Core i5 processor, 1080p display, Mini DisplayPort, and a USB 3.0 port. The tablet is also much pricier than its Surface RT counterpart, which starts at $499. The 64GB version is priced at $899 while the 128GB model will cost you $999.

what do you think that keyboard is in the picture?! Its not a snack when you are hungry!!!

I think that people are so quick to bash the trend of tablets, win8, heck even apple that they just go brain dead.

People (how many yet to be seen) want a tablet that replaces a laptops weight, heat, bulkyness, cost, etc. I want to play an MMO while my wife watches soaps on the couch. I shove the laptop off after 30 min or so my pants are on fire and not for a good thing.
