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.
Spec wise the Surface Pro is pretty good, as long as you don’t compare it to a similarly priced laptop.
