128GB Microsoft Surface Pro sells out at Microsoft's U.S. online store

128GB Microsoft Surface Pro sells out at Microsoft's U.S. online store
The 128GB version of the Microsoft Surface Pro is already sold out at Microsoft's U.S. online store just a few hours after being launched. This is the version of the Surface tablet that runs Windows 8 and is powered by a dual-core, Intel i5 core processor. Unlike the Microsoft Surface RT tablet, which is powered by an ARM-supported processor, desktop apps can run on the Surface Pro which is more of a mobile business computer. And perhaps the idea that the Microsoft Surface Pro is more suited toward heavy workloads has driven buyers to shell out the rather pricey $999 for the larger 128GB model.

That tablet does not include the Touch Cover with a flat touch QWERTY or the Type Cover with more traditional raised keys. Both covers dock to the tablet and provide protection to the screen. The Touch Cover is $119.99 and the Type cover is $10 more.

If you have your heart set on the 128GB model, the Canadian version of the Microsoft Store is said to still have it in stock. Other sellouts of the model have taken place with the online store belonging to business retailer Staples, and at Best Buy Canada. In the U.S., your best shot at obtaining a 128GB model of the Microsoft Surface Pro might be to check out the physical locations of certain retailers in your area, such as Best Buy or Staples. And if you'd be happy with the 64GB model, you might want to gobble it up online now, because that version is probably on its way to a sellout as well. While Microsoft is said to have had 4 million units of the Microsoft Surface RT ready at launch, only 1 million of the Microsoft Surface Pro slates were said to be shipped in time for Saturday's release of the device.
