Microsoft today announced a brand new version of the Surface Pro. The laptop is running Windows 8.1 and is launching next month. We were on the scene at Microsoft's New York City event this morning, and we've got hands on for you! Check out our first impressions below and let us know if you'll be pre-ordering in the morning.
The Surface Pro 2 packs a full version of Windows 8.1 Pro, a 10.6-inch ClearType Full HD display, support for microSD, USB 3.0, and mini DisplayPort. Both 64 GB and 128 GB capacities are available with 4 GB of RAM. The 256 and 512 GB capacities will each have 8 GB of RAM. The Surface Pro 2 will start at $899 and will include 200 GB of SkyDrive storage (again, for two years). Pre-orders for both the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 will start tomorrow, September 24, and availability in 21 markets is expected on October 22.
