128GB Microsoft Surface Pro to be re-stocked on Saturday
You wanted a 128GB Microsoft Surface Pro, but you figured what's the rush, at $999 a pop there is no way that the top of the line model would be gone on launch day. Uh, guess what. The device did sell out, and not just on Microsoft's online store either. Staples' web site was plumb out of the tablet well before the calendar changed to Sunday.

The 128GB Microsoft Surface will be re-stocked on Saturday

The 128GB Microsoft Surface will be re-stocked on Saturday

Before you either go on a scavenger hunt, or settle for something less, hold on for a second. A tweet from Panos Panay, GM of the Microsoft Surface line, says that the 128GB model of the slate will be re-stocked on Saturday while the 64GB model, also a sellout, is being re-stocked today. And while all of those sell outs sound impressive, indications are that less than 20,000 Microsoft Surface Pro tablets have been sold overall, making a mockery of the "Sold Out" designation. Microsoft wanted a buzz and it got one. However, with the amount of sales noted, the buzz isn't of the favorable variety.

The Microsoft Surface Pro is the version of the tablet that is more like a mobile version of the box on your office desk as it runs your legacy apps and is powered by a dual-core Intel i5 core processor. The Microsoft Surface RT uses an ARM supported processor and is a more traditional tablet that competes with the Apple iPad and Android tablets.

If you're an artist/designer this would make a perfect companion due to the Wacom stylus integration but other than that, its just a ridiculously overpriced laptop hybrid....$900 for a tablet seems too much' you can literally buy a good tablet PLUS a powerful i3 notebook to go with it

In other words. If Microsoft did not sell the 20000(+/-) units they would have been seen as a lot pathetic! But they did sell all the 20000(+/-) units so now they are just seen as pathetic but a little less?! No win situation! Go MS+ Surface!
