News Summary: Prices for Pro version of Surface


NEW SURFACE: Microsoft says its Surface tablet running a full version of Windows 8 Pro will start selling in January for $899 and up.

COMPARISONS: The current Surface uses the slimmed down Windows RT operating system. As a result, it runs only specially designed applications from Microsoft and others. The Pro version of Surface will also run regular Windows applications written for desktops and laptops.

DETAILS: The price for the Pro version includes a stylus and software that disregards touches from one's palm while writing on the touch screen. But the detachable touch-sensitive keyboard cover is sold separately.
