Microsoft has announced that in January Surface with Windows 8 Pro will be available in two versions and pricing will start at $899.

Surface with Windows 8 Pro:
● 64GB standalone version at $899
● 128GB standalone version at $999

Both versions will both include a Surface pen with Palm Block technology and include the ability to use a Touch Cover or Type Cover (sold separately).

On the inside, Surface with Windows 8 Pro will come with Intel’s next generation Core i5 processor. This chip will give Surface with Windows 8 Pro a graphics boost for its 10.6” 16:9 ClearType display that runs at a 1920x1080 full HD resolution. Surface with Windows 8 Pro also includes a full-size USB 3.0 port. Its Mini DisplayPort can drive an external display up to 2560X1440 resolution. And, as I mentioned above, Surface with Windows 8 Pro will support Pen input. This is an amazing feature for all you note-takers or document editors out there, especially since it has expanded capacitive and digitizing technology we’re calling Palm Block that will prevent your handwriting from getting interrupted if you accidently place your palm on the screen as you write. This feature is pretty cool, and allows for a great inking experience alongside a great touch experience when needed.

Surface with Windows 8 Pro will run your current Windows 7 desktop applications – it’s a full PC AND a tablet. And all this in a PC that will weigh less than two pounds and be less than 14 millimeters thick.

The battery is still a big challenge for matching the iPad's battery, and having it at a lower price. Good competition, I hope they do well, but with those caveats, they are still in need to add something new that really changes the adoption rate of their products. Microsoft seems to still be aiming at businesses first and consumers later. The growth that Apple had experienced is mainly in the consumer market for the iPad. Probably after a couple, of design iterations MS could get something better. Again, I hope they do well, therefore Apple releases something better that actually runs anything a Mac can.
