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.
, 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.

It's another ultra thin laptop with small amount of HD and limited spec. MS really does want to reflect Apples hardware business model !. It's a shame that these large companies still don't see that we as users want to be able to mod our hardware and software so we can attract attention to our new devices, it's called pride of ownership and it's really an ego boost when "mine looks the same as yours but can yours do this ?" It's also why Android has such a strong market and gaining market share all the time.

About half of the people I've seen with iPhones or Android phones use the default wallpaper and layout. Most people show off their 'flair' by slapping some rubberized plastic case on the device. But... we're talking about a laptop here... You CAN buy laptops with a discrete (removable) GPU, CPU and RAM but they are thick and heavy. The average person does NOT want to lug around a laptop that looks straight out of the 90's.
Android is gaining such a high market-share because it is both FREE and so many companies are producing devices with Android. There are only a few OS's right now. iOS, blackberry, windows phone and Android. Only Android is free and iOS and Blackberry aren't available for licencing.
