    It's on par with iPad pricing...which is exactly where Microsoft said that it would be.

    I was going to say the keyboard/cover is expensive - then I remembered I paid 40 for my ipad cover and 40 for a keyboard - it is the same I guess...

    For the price, the Surface does have twice the storage. And you get Office. I think that's worth it, at least.

    I think the included Windows apps are going to give it an advantage.

    APPS (included) | Mail • Messaging • Word • Power Point • Excel • OneNote • SkyDrive • Internet Explorer 10 • Bing • Music • Video • Games • and more.
    Will be interesting to see how it is received.

    I believe they only made 10 of the 32GB RT tablets to meet the expected demand

Are there both upgrade and non-upgrade versions? It seems all the pricing information for Windows 8 ($40) and Windows 8 Pro ($70) has been for upgrade versions but perhaps I have it wrong and one version works either way. If there is a more expensive non-upgrade version, what is the price?
