This seems like a much better deal than the Surface. That's a legit PC/tablet there.

wow, that price is honestly a lot lower than I thought it would be, I was expecting no less than $1100

Ouch. It would be a good price if it included the keyboard cover. So this basically starts at $1000+ with keyboard. I can see this being a tough sell over an ultrabook.

They should at least have a 256 GB model available, if not a 512 GB one as well; this is a real laptop after-all. The 64 GB model would be totally useless for me.

And without a touch cover included with the package there are better alternatives available.

With a portable keyboard. It has USB ports, if you wanted you could dock this and use it as a PC, and use the pen on the go.

This is actually the version I'm interested in getting - although I think it's around $100 too high.

That's true. I forgot that it had USB ports. (Y)

Not bad, I figured they'd charge under 1K for these and that depending on what cover you want the price will go over by a bit. I wonder if they'll come out while I'm still in the US.

and yet people tell us the Mac Air, which is priced higher and without a pen digitizer or the ability to run millions of apps, but yet people think that is a good deal and buy those.

Really? Surface Pro being basically an ultrabook (spec wise), I think Microsoft priced it very reasonably.

I can't wait for MS to start steamrolling over Apple and thinks get back to normal like they used to be! ;)

I think we all hoped it would be a bit cheaper, or include a Touch cover for this price.

But if you look at what you get it seems pretty fair to me.

Wonder what they meant with the new i5 processor, would it be one version up from IvyBridge?

Will it have connected standby like the new ATOM processors do?

No thanks. I don't buy into the whole ultrabook fad, overpriced tinkertoys aren't my cup of tea.

Ultrabooks aren't a fad. They're just the next logical step that laptops were going to reach anyway. Laptops were going to become thinner, have more battery life, yet be more powerful. What else would they do?

It was going to happen whether they were branded, "Ultrabooks" or not.

Unlike netbooks which really were tinkertoys.
