Surface Pro Will Cost You….

Microsoft yesterday unveiled the prices it will charge for its Surface Pro tablet. This is the version of Surface meant for real computing as it runs on Windows 8 Pro, includes an Intel processor and can run the library of Windows 7 and other compatible apps. The surface you can buy today is based on ARM and really expects a whole new library of native software.

So what's this Surface Pro gonna run me? From $900 to a grand, for starters. A thousand bucks will get you a model with 128 GB of storage. With so many cloud storage offerings, hopefully that will be plenty of room.

Have you ponied up for an ARM surface? Any thoughts on these machines? Share at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
