    Japanese customers lusting after the Intel Core i5-powered hybrid will be able to claim one on June 8th, priced at 99,800 yen ($975) with 128GB of storage. The new 256GB iteration will premiere on shelves there for 119,800 yen ($1,175), and customers there will be able to adorn it with the Touch Cover for 9,980 yen ($100) and tactile key Type Cover for 10,980 yen ($110). Better still, Microsoft will toss in its pressure-sensitive pen (and Office 2013) for all the versions as well -- just in time for you to finally do something useful with it.

    What! They get more storage and Office. I guess that makes up for being the last market to get shipments.

    I like the concept of the Surface, but 128 is not enough, even with the 64 flash card.....if the 256 ever comes out in the USA, I'll buy 2 right away! One for myself and one for my wife!

    Lets say hypothetically I had say 1300 cash right now and someone knew a MS sales person and I said they could have it for the 256gb pro with office what would the response be? Sorry I don't know anything about a 256gb model lol

    That's the point you ask the USA division and they say they've never heard of a 256gb version.
