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.

Actually, the Chromebook beats Intel (Atom) for most things in addition to battery life. Then again, that's Atom.

Nice comparing Samsung's latest to Atoms released in 2008 (single core at that!) and 2010. Even so it barely bests the D525 in some tests. The i3, also from 2010 and now 2 generations behind beats it in every category.


Fact is, ARM isnt the magic processor people make it out to be.
