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.

I guess that means a month or two until the surface rt price drop. they can't be so close.

surface pro will be the most awesome netbook ever. type cover + 11" intel ivy bridge tablet = most expensive toy you can hold in one hand.

I'm really interested to see where these form factors and screen sizes end up in a year or two. I for one am skeptical there is a big market for $1000 11" laptops.
