re: Will Microsoft Surface Tablet Cost $1,000?
"The numbers conflict with an earlier report by the Taiwan-based tech site DigitTimes, which pegged the starting price of Surface at $600. Either way, the prices would appear to put Surface at a competitive disadvantage to tablets from Microsoft's rivals. Amazon's popular Kindle Fire starts at just $199, and even Apple's new iPad can be had for $499."
Really, comparing a Surface tablet to a Kindle Fire or a cheap iPad? They are not even comparable or in the same target marget. Your comparison puts the validity of your article in question, if not in the trash. I agree the $1000 price is high, too high for my needs. At that price I would purchase a laptop or an ultrabook instead. At $700-800 I would consider a Surface, but not the RT version.
