Default x86 Surface Pro: $899 for 64GB, $999 for 128GB, no keyboard included

Microsoft has announced the pricing of the x86 version of its Surface tablet. Available some time in January, the Surface with Windows 8 Pro, as it it will be known, will cost $899 for the version with 64GB storage. Doubling the storage tacks $100 on to the purchase price.

The Surface Pro will be very similar to the Surface RT, with the same VaporMg finish, kickstand, and aesthetic. There are a few differences, however. Unlike the ARM version, the x86 device includes an active digitizer with pen support and an included pen, a USB 3 port, a screen resolution of 1920×1080 (as opposed to Surface RT's 1366×768), 10-point multitouch (instead of 5), and mini-DisplayPort for external screens (rather than mini-HDMI, as on Surface RT). Powering the device will be an as-yet unspecified Ivy Bridge Core i5 processor and 4GB RAM. The system will weigh 2lbs, and is about 14mm thick.

might be a better deal?
battery life for the Surface Pro is calculated at 4-5 hrs max

my 2 year old Macbook Air still lasts 6 hrs !
