Microsoft Prices Pro Version Of Surface At $899

Microsoft announced today that the Surface Pro will go on sale in January and cost $899 at launch. Hopefully the price falls relatively soon because, even though this is the most desireable version of the Surface, I don't see a stampede of people running out to buy it at this price point.

The price announced Thursday is in line with Microsoft's earlier statements that the Pro version would cost about the same as an ultrabook. The Pro version of Surface will come with Intel's Core i5 processor, which the company says gives it a graphics boost compared with the RT version.
