Yes, but that is just one issue.those tablets are too expensive
Dell seem to have an attempt at something around the $500 mark. No idea what it is like.
Unless it is made from el cheapo components, you rather wonder how they can do that.
Perhaps they get some financial help.
Too many people focusing on the number in that article. What's important is that it's not surprising there are IT professionals who are interested in Windows 8 tablets. It doesn't mention the Surface Pro specifically (and I do wonder what's taking the OEMs so long to get ranges of tablets on the market).
iPads in particular are all very well for the guys in sales and marketing but for real productivity Microsoft is where it's at.
