Customers preferring 128GB of memory will pay £799 - around double the price of Microsoft's more basic Surface RT model.

"The response to Surface RT has already been great to see," Robert Epstein, UK Surface Lead, said. "There has been strong anticipation for Surface Pro in the UK.

"We're excited to be able to offer people a fully blown Windows 8 PC packed with powerful processing features in the innovative Surface design."

Strong demand in the US, where the Surface Pro had sold over 400,000 units by March, delayed the UK launch.

The tablet, as well as accessories like the Touch Cover and Type Cover, will be available from Microsoft's online store.
