The day has finally come. As of today, you can now purchase the Surface Windows 8 Pro online at a Microsoft Store, or at a retailer such as BestBuy and Staples. While the Surface RT is powered by Windows RT, the Surface Pro is the higher end Surface with Windows 8 and can run desktop applications (x86 and x64).
The Surface Pro is now available for purchase in two flavors, a 64GB model for $899 and a 128GB model for $999. Touch/Type Covers are sold separately. Grab yours before they are sold out!
