Windows Microsoft has announced the launch date of the Surface Pro, as well as widened availability of the Surface RT. The Surface Pro will launch in the US and Canada only, 9 February, for a starting price of $899. Surface RT's market availability, in the meantime, will expand to Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland, also 9 February. Considering I was planning on ordering one from Germany, they're just in time so I can order from The Netherlands.

899 for the cheapest model and that without the touchcover (which costs 129)?

While Surface Pro is cute as a cupcake, it is starting to look expensive now that ASUS, Acer and Samsungs tabs are out.

Their tablets (assuming Win8) use Intel Atoms. This uses a Core i5.

Using Clovertrail you can (as shown by Acer) get down to the $500 range.
