Not quite cheap enough, those Gen1 Surface Pros without the keyboard included. Remember that they have bad battery life etc, so when people are looking between Gen2 and Gen1, they are going to be pushed towards Gen2 for it's improvements if they can afford the extra cost at all. Here in the UK the Gen1 tablet alone is milling around £500-£700, and the Gen2 is £700-£1,000.

whs, some questions if you don't mind my asking:
WinRT or Full Windows?
Does it include a regular USB port? If so is it USB2 or USB3?
Does it include a HDMI or Mini Display Port for showing the tablet on a HDTV?
How is gaming performance? Can you play regular 'AAA' type games on the default 'normal' settings?
How is it for online video/streaming (YouTube, Netflix, Twitch) in terms of watching flawlessly and not stuttering/buffering/crashing?
