    With the prices leaking earlier today, it was only a matter of time before Microsoft opened the pre-orders on their website with the respective prices also available.

    Fixed that for you. Seriously though this thing looks pretty neat. I already have a laptop, but it's pretty nice for people who want a tablet that can do a bit more, I guess.

    I dont think I'll be getting on of those. Just doesn't look like something I want.

    I'm glad they gave some specs for the device; now we know what's beneath the Surface.

    I want I want I want I want I want I want!

    Seriously, this thing looks and sounds amazing. And I just get impressed even more whenever I see it. Actually looks worth owning instead of an iPad (no offense to those who own an iPad).

    Does the price not seem a bit high to you?

    Bit gutted the Pro isn't out until next year, even then I expect it to be delayed. Really can't wait to get my hands on a Surface Pro.

    Although I'm not looking forward to seeing the price tag.

    It's not something I need but it definitely looks good. I like that it has MS Office included.

    I assume you're blind then, they're in the first post with the picture.

    You might want to edit your original post then. It doesn't seem to be loading properly.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Here it is for anyone interested.

    Microsoft has declared that the Surface Pro's price is "in-line with Ultrabook prices", well, I sure do hope that you have £1000 somewhere! :P

    @OP
    Better re-host that pic somewhere, it looks like the hosting is probably SO overloaded that it has gone to Oblivion.

    The image isn't loading because you're hotlinking it from Neowin's website.

    Mirror it on GBAtemp for pete's sake, you can upload images without even leaving the page by clicking your name link in the navbar in the top-right corner.

    Anyhow it looks too expensive for me, maybe the office software is included in the price but for those expenses you could probably build a nicer desktop machine capable of much more.
    I know it's competitively priced against the iPad, but that lovely surface type cover is an extra $120 at least.

    M$ Surface Pro has me somewhat interested since it maintains x86/x64 compatibility and seems like a nice enough computer, however in the event that I'd want a tablet tablet and not a fully functional portable PC then I'd probably go with the Nexus 7 instead.

    Looks like it could hurt Apple's market share.

    I'm sure the lawyers are having sleepless nights looking for some flimsy infringement.
