The Surface Pro Release Announced

Hard to believe that people are going to buy these things up. One excuse from Windows users that I constantly hear as to why they won't buy a Mac is because they are so expensive. Here you have a tablet that costs in most cases twice as much as what people will pay for an entry level HP (or insert PC competitor here) laptop. The Verge:

The company says that the Surface Pro will be bundled with a Surface pen and is compatible with the Touch Cover or Type Cover for keyboard input, though neither keyboard options are bundled with the tablet. A 64GB model will cost $899, while a 128GB edition will be available for $999. The tablet includes a USB 3.0 port and a Mini DisplayPort, which can drive a screen of up to 2560 x 1440 resolution. The Pro version is a little heavier and thicker than the RT model, but Microsoft notes that it is still under two pounds and less than 14mm thick.

Hey it comes with a stylus, that's cool...right? Oh yeah and the advertised space is not quite what you get after the operating system and applications are installed, but hey you didn't want all that space anyhow. I wonder how much more space the full version of Windows 8 takes up of the tablet's overall storage compared to the RT version?
