By Norman Chan

Finally, a release date.

Microsoft has just confirmed that its Surface Pro tablet will go on sale in the US and Canada on Feb 9th (a Saturday). Starting price is $899 for the 64GB model with a Core i5 processor. The 128GB model is priced at $999. Both will be available at Microsoft stores, online, and at Best Buys and Staples stores. Anand's hands-on preview is a good read, and has some new info, including the fact that the Surface Pro will be using the 17watt TDP version of Intel's Ivy Bridge. Chime in if you're planning on buying one!
