    Surface Pro pricing: Positioned like a tablet, built like an Ultrabook

    The Surface Pro is doomed. Or so it would seem, given the announced prices of $899 (64GB storage) and $999 (128GB storage.) How does the new Surface Pro pricing really compare to the competition?

    The most expensive iPad, the 64GB model with both Wi-Fi and LTE support, costs $829. That means the 64GB Surface Pro commands a $70 price premium compared to the iPad. The $829 iPad does offer mobile broadband, something the Surface Pro lacks. However, the Pro has a USB 3.0 port, a Micro-SDXC card slot, and DisplayPort connector. Microsoft also includes a stylus, useful for artists or handwriting recognition. Apple doesn't offer a 128GB model, so the Pro has an edge in capacity, if you're willing to pay more.
