Microsoft Corporation has priced the Surface tablet that runs on a full version of Windows 8 Pro.  The Surface Pro will sell in January at a price of $899 and up.  The price will increase if you want a keyboard cover and Microsoft Office too.

The current version of the Microsoft Surface runs on the Windows RT operating system.  The Surface is sold through Microsoft’s online store and it has slimmed down versions of Microsoft applications.  The Pro version of the Surface will have regular Windows applications that were written for desktops and laptops.

The Surface Pro does include a stylus and software that disregards the touches of your palm when writing on the touch screen.  The touch-sensitive keyboard cover is sold separately though.  The Surface Pro has an Intel Core i5 processor.  The $899 version has 64GB memory and the $999 version has 128GB of memory.
