Earlier in the year we brought you the news that Microsoft’s Surface Pro pricing would run in the $999 range. Now, Microsoft has confirmed the pricing in a post by Surface GM Panos Panay.
The Surface Pro models will come in two flavors, with a 64GB model running $899 and a 128GB model running $999. Both Surface Pro models will include a Surface Pen and the ability to use a touch Cover or Type Cover, though those are sold separately.
The Pro versions of the Surface feature some differences from the already released Surface RT models:
- Intel Core i5 processor.
- 10.6” 16:9 ClearType display that runs at a 1920×1080 full HD resolution.
- A full-size USB 3.0 port.
- Mini DisplayPort that can drive an external display up to 2560X1440 resolution.
- Pen input with Palm Block technology.
