Just a few months back, Microsoft had brought something new that freshened up the line of tablets on the market, the Surface RT. And they are ready again to spice up their latest creation, as they load it with Windows 8 Pro and better specs.
If you take a look at the tablet, it pretty much dons the same look as with the Surface RT. One similarity is the VaporMg casing. Surface pro is no different from Surface RT when it comes to built-in kickstand and screen size that is 10.6 inches. What sets the Surface Pro from the RT version is its screen resolution, having a 1920 x 1080p full HD resolution compared to 1366 x 768 of the RT version. Moreover, the Surface Pro will have a 42 W-h battery, giving it a battery life half with that of the RT model.
Surface Pro also differs from the RT version by other details including Intel’s 3rd-gen Core i5 processor, a full size USB 3.0 port, support for pen input, Mini DisplayPort that is able to output up to 2560 x 1440 resolution. In addition, the Surface Pro has 4GB RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi, 720p front and rear cameras and it also comes with a Surface pen.
The price of the device seems hefty for a tab, starting at $899 for the 64GB model. The 128GB will cost you bigger bucks at a price of $999. It’s a “standalone” model, meaning you have to dole out extra $100 for a touch or type cover. Surface Pro is said to be brought to light in January 2013, with the specific date unknown.
