Microsoft Surface Pro Tablet-Laptop Computer to Launch With Windows 8 Pro on February 9 for $899 - ABC News
|The second wave of Microsoft's tablet assault comes next month. The company announced today that the second version of its Surface tablet -- the Surface Windows 8 Pro -- will launch on Feb. 9 for $899.99.|
In October, Microsoft released Windows 8 and, along with it, its own $499 Surface RT tablet. The tablet ran Windows RT, a stripped-down version of Microsoft's new operating system, and was powered by an ARM processor, which didn't allow it to run many well-known Windows programs.
