Microsoft Surface Pro Tablet

A more powerful version of the Microsoft Surface Tablet that runs the full Windows 8 operating system rather than the scaled-down Windows RT operating system.

Officially referred to by Microsoft as the Surface with Windows 8 Pro, the Surface Pro seeks to combine the capabilities of a tablet and a PC in one device by offering the full power of the Windows 8 OS and Intel-powered processors in a tablet form factor that is 0.53 inches thick and weighs less than 2 pounds.
 
The Microsoft Surface Pro tablet’s increased power does come at the expense of battery life, which is half that of the regular Surface tablet, and price, which will start at $899 when the device becomes available in early 2013. The starting price also doesn’t include the cost of Microsoft’s unique combination cover and keyboard, which starts at $120. 

Given its pricing and capabilities, the Surface Pro tablet is expected to compete against ultrabooks moreso than tablet devices.
