Microsoft has already announced that Surface with Windows 8 Pro would be available in January 2013. In January, Surface with Windows 8 Pro will be available in two versions and pricing will start at $899:
- 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). Surface with Windows 8 Pro uses the same familiar elegant design principles as Surface with Windows RT including the Dark Titanium VaporMg casing, dual 2×2 MIMO antennas designed specifically for Surface and of course the kickstand. However, it also has some differences.
