Windows After yesterday's TV advertisement, Microsoft finally unveiled the pricing for its Surface tablet - the ARM Windows RT version that is. The cheapest Surface - 32GB without touch cover - will set you back $499. They're aiming straight for iPad pricing here, ignoring the popular cheaper Android offerings. Update: only available in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom and the United States. As usual.

Ultrabooks, don't really do that.

The main bottleneck on a modern PC is the Hardrive, if they have an SSD unless you are running Sharepoint or something equally heavy for development you won't really notice.

I think my original post may have been surprisingly grammatically unclear. If such a think is possible. I really do think that ultrabooks are priced higher than other notebooks that have the same level of performance (along with a heavier, thicker frame).

Well obviously you are paying for the "lightness" are you not?
