Microsoft's Surface Pro Windows 8 tablet is set to hit the stores in the US and Canada.
Microsoft originally stated that the tablet would arrive three months after its little brother, the Surface tablet with Windows RT, was released.
The Surface Pro is expected to start at $899 for the 64GB version and $999 (£622) for the 128GB model.
The Surface Pro is the version of Microsoft's new slate that runs the proper desktop version of Windows 8, rather than the cut-down, tablet-specific Windows RT. The Pro runs on powerful laptop processors, rather than weedier, less power-sucking mobile chips.
