Microsoft Surface Pro is now available in the UK
Remember a few months ago when Microsoft announced the Surface tablets? The Windows RT version and the Windows 8 versions seemed to be the answer to everyone’s problems.

The RT came out and people complained about installing non store based apps, Microsofts answer was “buy the Pro version”, which is going to be a few months time and cost a whole load more money. Well after a good few months it’s available in the UK.

Talking of money the 128GB version will cost £799.99 and the 64GB version £719.99. Plus you’ll need to buy a keyboard cover as well. Which aren’t the cheapest keyboards I’ve ever seen. You can get here on the Microsoft Store.

      I’ve seen one of these and while I didn’t think it was terrible, at the same time I couldn’t really figure out why anyone would want one, especially at the price it is. I really don’t understand why a slimline laptop wouldn’t be better in almost every way. Care to enlighten?

        I suppose pricing is inline with the ‘Ultrabook’ spec machines, eg. Dell XPS 12, Lenovo Yoga, Asus Zenbook Prime, etc.

    I would like one for work and have managed to talk the bosses out of ipads. The only problem is that the surface doesn’t have and data (3g/4g) capabilities which is handy when your CRM is web based and files are stored in the cloud!
