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.

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?

But I don't want the extra lightness, I want functionality that is useful to me, a non traveller that rarely moves his laptop out of the house. And, I'd suspect most notebook buyers are like myself. Its nice that its under ten pounds and I can move it around the house, but its okay if it weighs more than my cutting board.
