Now that Microsoft’s(s msft) Surface with Windows RT has launched, the company is sharing details about the more powerful tablet known as Microsoft Surface with Windows 8 Pro. The device, available in January 2013, will cost $899 for a 64 GB model while doubling the internal storage adds another $100. Optional keyboard covers will also be available while the tablet does come with a digital Surface pen and Palm Block technology.
When Microsoft first hinted at Surface Pro pricing, it said it would be competitive with Ultrabook pricing. While the $899 starting price is more than some would like to see, I’d say it’s roughly in line with previous expectations, even with additional costs for a keyboard cover. I’ve seen a few Ultrabooks in the $600 to $800 price range, but they’re generally entry-level devices in this class. Most are actually nearer to over just over $1,000.
