Windows Surface Pro went on sale last week and no one was sure how the public would react to the new device. The Windows RT didn’t sell wonderfully, but it also wasn’t terrible. Knowing that, some people expected doom and gloom with the Surface Pro’s release. Were people still excited? Maybe they were just waiting for the Pro instead of purchases a truncated version of Windows 8 in tablet form. That seems to be the case, at least with its immediate release. Several businesses has announced that their stock of the 128GB version of the Surface has sold out, leaving the 64GB version still scattered about at some locations.
With the release of the Windows RT, which is the Windows 8 Tablet that is more tablet than PC, folks have been waiting patiently to hear of the price of Windows Surface Pros, the tablets that are more PC than tablet. Well, the cats out of the bag, along with a release date and specific hardware specs, and folks may not be too quick to purchase Microsoft’s newest experiment upon release in January.

So Windows 8 is finally here and I got it day one. Typically I like to wait a bit before things get released and get the latest reviews. But the deals for Windows 8 Pro were too good to pass up, especially on Amazon. We already have an article on what to expect from Windows 8, so does this new operating system change the way you’ll use Windows? Or is it Windows ME and Vista all over again?
Perhaps the most drastic change for Microsoft since Windows 95 comes Windows 8. A metro style user interface that looks sleek, loads fast and has barely any resemblance to any Windows operating system before it… and it’s coming out tomorrow. Preordering the pro version from Amazon will get you a $30 Amazon gift card, as well as dropping the price from $200 to $70 (an unheard of discount). So get on Amazon quickly to nab your copy before the sale ends. But what should you expect? Well, the Windows 8 reviews are out and we have a few things for you to look out for while you find your way around this new operating system.
With Microsoft releasing surface and Windows 8 in the next coming months more and more info has been spilling out to give customers an idea of what they are in for. SmartGlass, if you’re unaware, is an “app” that will connect all your digital devices together even if it’s a refurbished cell phone. So they will feel more like limbs of a single device, as oppose to devices connected via bluetooth. The idea goes along with Windows 8 new metro design that will be across all windows device. Such as their phones, tablets, PC and even the Xbox (which was updated today with a quasi Windows 8 look). But what is the first SmartGlass app to surface this coming year?
