Microsoft Sets the Price for Its New Tablets with Windows 8 Pro

Published: November 30, 2012

A month after the release of its tablet Surface with Windows RT, Microsoft announced the price for its new tablets with Window 8 Pro.

There will be two versions of this new kind of tablets according to their storage capacity. These are:

  • 64GB version at $899
  • 128GB version at $999

The difference between these new tablets and the previous ones resides in their operating system. Although Windows RT and Windows 8 Pro look alike, the first of them is meant only for tablets and only runs programs available at the new online Windows Store. The second one, on the other hand, is meant both for tablets and desktop PCs, and therefore users can install in it the same programs that they used in Windows 7.

As Microsoft announced, these new tablets Surface with Windows 8 Pro will be available in January 2013.
