Microsoft’s 256GB Surface Pro launched exclusively in Japan back in May, but now the company is finally offering the roomy tablet for American consumers through a handful of resellers. CDW is already selling the 256GB model online for $1,199.99, and Microsoft has confirmed to Engadget that availability is limited. So if you’re looking to pick one up you should act fast before it’s too late.
The tablet is equipped with an Intel Core i5 3317U, 4GB of RAM, Windows 8 Pro, a 10.6-inch HD display with a 1920 x 1080-pixel resolution, a Surface Pen and, of course, 256GB of internal storage. The device should be available through CDW in four to six days. It does not ship with a Microsoft-designed smart cover.
The same tablet costs just 119,800 yen ($1,175) in Japan, so you’re paying a bit more for picking one up stateside, but unless you were already planning a trip to Tokyo there’s no longer any reason to travel halfway across the world for your next tablet.
