    Does anyone know what software will come with the Pro version? What version of Office?

    Microsoft office not included with Microsoft Surface Pro.

    Microsoft Surface Pro will not include Microsoft Office. Office is only included on the RT (RuneTime) version. This was stated by Microsoft

    Thanks for the info. This makes the price for the RT that much more attractive.

    Indeed, if the limits of the Surface RT are fine for you, it is the much better choice. Cheaper, lighter, smaller, no fan, longer battery life.

    Limits, though, kill for some:
    * lower screen resolution
    * no x86 software
    * (that includes Outlook)
    * no digitizer

    That said, I really don't know how much x86 software is viable to run on a 10.6" 1920x1080 display...

    true-- but the update app kicks you to the desktop, but they are desktop apps I guess :)
