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.

according to the verge, Microsoft is saying that the battery lasts 4 hours. I guess it's 4 hours when new. After 2 years you can still use it to press those papers on your desk so that the wind doesn't blow them.

Hmm. doesn't seem very desirable to me...maybe, just before I drop off this mortal coil, a few more years and such devices will be both powerful, cheap and last long enough for me to consider. Not yet, for sure.
