Microsoft Pro’s are flying off the digital shelves.
Just hours after becoming available in the U.S. at Microsoft’s online store, the tablets are shown as out of stock. While frustrating for shoppers, this is a good sign for Microsoft whose first surface tablet was rather disappointing.
VentureBeat reviewed the Surface Pro last week and found marked improvement over the Surface RT. This tablet has an Intel processor and can run the full version of Windows 8, as older versions of the software. The positive reviews evidently filtered down to consumers, who got straight to buying once the merchandise became available.
The 128GB model costs $1000 and the 64GB costs $899, with touch/type covers sold separately. The Pros are likely still available in brick-and-mortar retailers like Best Buy.
