Microsoft’s Surface Pro is now available for sale, are you interested? With a 10.6″ HD display, Intel i5 Processor, and up to 128GB of of storage, it’s definitely worth a look. There’s only one problem though, if you’re in the market for the 128GB version, which retails for $999.00, you may have a little trouble tracking one down. Many retailers including Microsoft’s own online store, are apparently sold out. The 64GB version is a little easier to find and it priced at $899.00. Hopefully this is a good sign for Microsoft in the tablet game.
Although I wasn’t real fond of Windows 8 initially, it has grown on me a bit, and I truly believe the major disconnect between me and the new OS was the fact that it’s not designed to feel very smooth while using a mouse. Surface Pro should make the experience much better, especially when it’s built on good hardware.
If you’re looking to pick one up, Microsoft is offering up retail options here.
