New Surface Pro model coming next week

When it comes to Microsoft's Surface and Surface Pro tablets, the Redmond, Washington-based company hasn't exactly had a hit on its hands. One might say that a lack of storage space isn't the primary reason for consumer's apprehension of Surface, but that isn't stopping Microsoft from making available an even more expensive version for the U.S. market.
 
According to Windows Phone Central, the 256GB Microsoft Surface Pro that made its way to Japan in late May will wind up on our shores next week. The price of entry for the new model is a hefty $1,199 at CDW.

 
According to Windows Phone Central, the increase in storage capacity is the only change this time around, so those hoping to score a Surface Pro with Haswell power will have to wait until a refresh comes along.

At this price, you might as well buy a zenbook or any of the new 11-13" ultrabooks. They are about just as thin with a bigger screen, same or better battery life.

For about the same price you can get a faster 13" Haswell MBA with a larger screen and (according to Anandtech) 13 hours of battery life.

Surface Pro at this price, nah

This is true. Surface Pro has an older CPU that just pale in comparison compare to the Haswell based CPU now as far as battery consumption goes. I am not sure why Microsoft do not send their existing inventory to be refitted with Haswell CPU. Call it Surface Pro plus or something while they works on Surface Pro 2. I guess Microsoft is just not that savvy in running hardware business even though they try to be a "device company".
