The full-blown Windows 8 version of Microsoft's new tablet -- Surface Pro -- goes on sale in January with a starting price of $899 ... and that doesn't include the distinctive snap-on cover/keyboard that will be pretty much essential for anyone wanting to use the machine for traditional Windows applications.
Microsoft's home-built ultrabook called Surface for Windows 8 Pro goes on sale on Saturday in the US and may be the Windows 8 device that best meets a wide range of corporate needs from tablet to desktop.
