Microsoft announced the sales price and launch window for the Surface Pro, the latest addition to the Surface tablet line

According to Microsoft, the Surface Pro – actual name: Surface with Windows 8 Pro – will retail at two price points: $899 for a 64 GB model and $999 for a 128 GB edition. (Want the Touch Cover keyboard? You'll have to buy it separately.) The device, which is intended for IT professionals and design types, should arrive in early January – too late, it's worth noting, to really capitalize on the holiday shopping rush. 

"Surface with Windows 8 Pro will come with Intel’s next generation Core i5 processor," Microsoft's Panos Panoy wrote in a blog post today. "This chip will give Surface with Windows 8 Pro a graphics boost for its 10.6-inch 16:9 ClearType display that runs at a 1920 x 1080 full HD resolution. Surface with Windows 8 Pro also includes a full-size USB 3.0 port. Its Mini DisplayPort can drive an external display up to 2560 x 1440 resolution."
