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.

These would have a difficult time selling for $800

Actually, rethinking that, $700 or no sales. They really don't WANT to sell these do they?

To top it off, only japan gets a free copy of office 2013...LOL. In US that costs more.

They will sell 5 of these. :) And I think that is a generous number...ROFL. I'm puzzled as to why they can't figure out everything else is HUNDREDS cheaper so you will never sell except to suckers or MS employees. Get ready to give them away to schools also. Nobody will buy, and they'll be old and still on the shelf in 6 months as newer faster things come along and they'll have to give them out free to schools again.

$1199 is the same price of 256Gb 11" Macbook Air. And you don't see that sells only 5 units. Those vendors which are cheaper do not come with extra such as digitizer, so it is not a fair comparison. Obviously there are people who can afford this at such price while there are those who feel this is not worth it. But to generalize that this will sell 5 units are way too much. But I do think Microsoft is slow in rolling out their product, and even slower to update their hardware when Haswell CPU is already available. They will never be a successful device company at their current pace.
