I'm sure you may have read that I'm excited about Microsoft's upcoming Surface Pro, and each day is getting closer - oh boy. We are now actually looking at it being released 24 hours before the official February 9 release, where the tablet is being launched at midnight the day before they become commercially available.

The launch will take place during a private evening reception for select guests before the event itself, and then we can expect a formal launch just before midnight on February 9. This will all happen at Best Buy in Union Square in New York City. Invited guests will be among the first to buy the Surface Pro's, or as Microsoft officially calls them, "Surface Windows 8 Pros" - really? Wow.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
