Good news for anyone wanting to check out one of those new Microsoft Surface tablets, as the company has officially unveiled the price for the ARM-powered version. The Microsoft Surface tablets running Windows RT start at $499 for the 32GB version, with the 64GB coming in at $599. Each 10.6" slate unfortunately does not include that snazzy Touch Cover, as it is a $120 extra. The Type Cover, the more traditional keyboard version, is an extra $130. Microsoft is selling a bundle of the Touch Cover and 64GB Surface for $699, which is a good deal for those wanting to pick up both. Microsoft's website is the place to pre-order the Surface, and it will ship to your door on October 26. If you happen to live near a retail Microsoft Store, you can head in there to pick one up on the 26th as well.
