Windows "Today, I want to share a bit more detail about the growing Surface family of products and Surface with Windows 8 Pro, specifically around pricing. In January, Surface with Windows 8 Pro will be available in two versions and pricing will start at $899." Stefan Constantine noted on Twitter: "For the price of a Surface Pro ($899), you could buy a Nexus 4 ($349), Nexus 7 ($299), and a Chromebook ($249). Do the math." No matter how hard people are going to shout the Surface Pro is an ultrabook competitor, people will compare it to an iPad.

If you attach external keyboard, mouse and display, then it should be possible to turn this little fellow to full blown workstation - good for coding, and then just pick it up and go. Better than current laptops, as I've used a laptop for my work machine for several years now.

The non-magnetized cover however seems to be a problem as it does not want to stay put
