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.

Appears to be a reboot of what M$ attempted in the first place before the iPad was born. It definitely is a familiar pricing scheme. Only time will tell if it's a justifiable pricing scheme. The main question that I have with this setup is, Will I be able to come within any ballpark of productivity with W8 Pro Surface Tab? If so, it just might be a winner.
