Microsoft Surface with Windows 8 Pro Schedule to be Available in January 2013

After the released of the ARM-based Microsoft Surface tablet since last month, Microsoft have finally come out with the x86-based Microsoft Surface tablet will be coming out in January 2013.

Officially called as the Surface with Windows 8 Pro, the 10.6-inch tablet shares the same physical VaporMg shell as the ARM-based counterpart. However, the Surface with Windows 8 Pro is powered by an Ivy Bridge-based Intel Core i5 (no mention of its clock speed though) processor together with the built-in Intel HD Graphics 4000 as its GPU and 4GB of RAM. This one will come with the full size USB3.0 port and Mini DisplayPort that supports external display with maximum resolution of up to 2560×1440. Each purchase of the tablet will come together with a pen as Surface with Windows 8 Pro supports pen input – another feature that differentiate it from Surface with Windows RT.

The pricing, though is slightly  steep comparing with the ARM-based Microsoft Surface, with the 64GB is already at USD899 and the 128GB at USD999. But then of course, the Surface with Windows 8 Pro can be a use to create rather than just consume compare to majority of the tablets that are currently available in the market now.
