Surface Pro is designed to showcase Windows 8 Pro and represents exceptional value, providing customers with a fully functional Windows 8 PC that looks, feels and acts like a tablet. With an estimated retail price of £719 for the 64GB configuration, and £799 for the 128 GB configuration, Surface Pro will be available online at A range of accessories for the Surface Pro is also available. These include Touch Cover – a super-thin, spill resistant cover with a pressure sensitive keyboard that comes in a variety of colours as well as a Type Cover – one of the thinnest mechanical keyboards available, HD AV and VGA adaptors and the Wedge Touch Mouse Surface Edition.

“The response to Surface RT has already been great to see,” said Robert Epstein, UK Surface Lead  “There has been strong anticipation for Surface Pro in the UK and we’re excited to be able to offer people a fully blown Windows 8 PC packed with powerful processing features in the innovative Surface design.”

The Surface family of devices represents an extension of the Windows experience, letting customers work easy, play hard, and connect with the people who matter to them. Surface lets customers transition between entertainment and creation. It offers an ultra-light durable casing and an integrated kickstand and cover that allow customers to be productive anywhere, as well as a full-sized USB port and microSDXC card slot for adding additional storage and a 16:9 widescreen high-definition display that makes it optimal for viewing and sharing content easily.

Surface Pro, powered by an Intel Core i5 processor, is equivalent to a full-blown Windows 8 laptop that also boasts tablet capabilities. For the first time, customers can have a fully functional PC that looks, feels and acts like a tablet and allows handwriting and sketching with the Surface pen in a natural and intuitive way. With Surface Pro, customers can do virtually everything they have ever done on a PC, ranging from using their favourite desktop applications to enjoying the protection of world-class safety and security software.
