  1. Only thing that has me on the fence is the price. I bought an iPad a couple months ago and love it. If it’s priced well, I’m sold. They look amazing.

  2. Microsoft has said that they will be priced competitively …

    Just read that they’ll be priced similar to the iPads depending on the model

  4. I’m not sure if they need to be priced competitively or lower than the competitors. Side by side with an iPad, I’d go for the Windows Surface. But, to get in the majority and kill the iPad, I’d have to say that Microsoft may have to lose money at first to get a large market penetration. The Pro version is an easy sell. It’s powerful, sleek, fast and run Windows 8, and it’s priced right (if rumors of starting at $799 are true).
