Surface Pro demo units reportedly available in select stores ahead of launch

Surface Pro

With February 9th quickly approaching, it won't be long before you'll be able to buy a Surface Pro of your own. But if you want to try before you buy, it looks like select retail stores are getting demo units ahead of the release date, starting today. That's according to reports from both Engadget and WinSuperSite, but unfortunately it's not clear exactly which stores will be receiving the units, though the device will likely be on sale at Best Buy, Staples, and Microsoft Stores, much like the Surface RT. The 64GB Surface Pro will be available for $899 when it launches in both the US and Canada later this month — be sure to check out our in-depth impressions of the device from CES 2013 in January.
