Two models of Surface will be available: one running an ARM processor featuring Windows RT, and one with a third-generation Intel Core processor featuring Windows 8 Pro. From the fast and fluid interface, to the ease of connecting you to the people, information and apps that users care about most, Surface will be a premium way to experience all that Windows has to offer. Surface for Windows RT will release with the general availability of Windows 8, and the Windows 8 Pro model will be available about 90 days later. Both will be sold in the Microsoft Store locations in the U.S. and available through select online Microsoft Stores.
A fellow MVP, Michael Pietroforte is running a poll on Windows 8’s desired features on his website, 4sysops. Featured listed include New user interface, Support for different form factors, More modularity, Bare metal hypervisor, Windows Restore Button, Cloud APIs, Better UAC and few more!
