Surface with Windows 8 Pro tablet coming Feb. 9

Microsoft's Surface with Windows 8 Pro tablet is going to miss its planned January launch, but not by much. The tablet will now launch on February 9. The Surface with Windows 8 Pro sports much beefier internals than the Surface with Windows RT. The difference is right there in the name, as the Pro features a full version of Windows 8, meaning it should run most Windows applications, including games. That said, don't expect the internal graphics processor to churn out high settings for most recent releases.

The Surface with Windows 8 Pro comes with 64GB of storage for $899 or 128GB of storage for $999. The Touch and Type keyboard covers can be purchased separately for $120 or $130, respectively.
