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.

I would by a dozen of those tablets, haha :).

I would welcome Haswell, the thickness is a non-issue (it's not thick by any definitions), weight doesn't bother me particularly, but lighter would definitely be better. "Retina" display can go jump in a lake, the 1080p screen IS impossible to distinguish from a "retina" display if you have 20:10 vision or worse (I have worse) in terms of resolution, but is easier to drive. As a side benefit, the Surface Pro screen can be properly calibrated and has superior contrast (which is the most important element of screen quality to the human eye).

Price-wise I think the Surface Pro is an absolute bargain, it (for me) replaces a tablet and a laptop (though it should be noted that I didn't use a laptop on the go, merely transported it from place to place and used it, the Surface Pro is not great for in-transit productivity - except drawing).
