Surface Pro priced at $899, coming in January

$999 for 128GB version

Microsoft’s Surface Pro tablet is set to launch early next year, with a price tag of $899 for the 64GB unit and $999 for the 128GB version.

The Surface Pro differs from the Surface RT in a number of key aspects. It is based on an Intel x86 chip and it runs Windows 8 rather than Windows RT. It also features a stylus and HD screen, but the perks come at a price.

At $899 the Surface Pro is practically priced in ultrabook territory, and let’s not forget about pricey accessories. The touch cover costs $120, while the hard Type cover goes for $130.

In addition, ZDnet is reporting that the battery life is rather limited. The Pro should get about half the battery life of the Surface RT.
