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.

Tablets are by nature a portable device, why should tethering a bunch of things be considered a positive? That's what wifi and bluetooth are for.
Don't get me wrong, I like the Surface (even the RT), but the lack of fullscreen touch-optimized Surface RT apps is a huge strike at the moment. I have Windows 8 on my laptop and full-screen tablet apps are not what I'd be using it for right now.
At this point I think I'd be more interested in a 13" or 15" laptop with an IPS touchscreen rather than the Surface, at least until the lack of dedicated touchscreen applications for Windows 8 gets sorted out.
