Microsoft has also insisted the product is “perfect for customers and businesses looking for the power and performance of a PC in a tablet package.”
But despite positive talk, the device’s price tag begins at a staggering $899 for a 64GB version while a 128GB release accounts for $999. The Surface Pro has also received criticism regarding its thickness and how long its battery lasts.
The Surface notably features a kickstand and a case that multitasks as a rollout keyboard – signifying the device’s easy transition into more of a laptop-type computer.
The first Microsoft tablet, the Surface RT, has received sales of around 1 million units, according to ABC News which cited analyst estimates.
