Microsoft Reveals Windows 8 Pro Surface Pricing

By Stephen Schenck November 29, 2012, 2:18 pm

Some recent rumors have suggested that Microsoft might be thinking about speeding-up the release of the Windows 8 Pro version of its Surface tablet, in an effort to generate some consumer interest following a less-than-glowing reception for the Surface RT model. Well, according to Microsoft, those rumors of a December release are off, and we're still looking at a January launch, instead. While the company hasn't revealed a specific date just yet, it had some other Surface Pro details to share, finally disclosing pricing info.

Microsoft sells the Surface RT 32GB model for about $500, and while the 64GB version is only available with a Touch Cover for nearly $700, we can assume it would be about $600 alone. For the Windows 8 Pro Surface models, neither of which will come with a Touch nor Type Cover by default, the 64GB version will sell for about $900, while the 128GB comes in a hair under $1000.

POCKETNOW VIDEO OF THE DAY

While certainly expensive, those prices are in line with what Microsoft told us to expect, comparable to ultrabook laptops.

For the moment, Microsoft's not accepting pre-orders for the Windows 8 Pro Surface models, but we should see that change as we get closer to January.
