    I'm disappointed but not heartbroken over the price. It would be nice once we activated the tablet there would be a 50.00 credit or something on the app store for us.

    But I won't hold my breath...

    You should really look closer before you try and spout off about what you don't know troll. The 32GB iPad is more expensive than the 32GB surface. The 32GB iPad is $599 [HL]WITHOUT[/HL] a keyboard, while the 32GB Surface is $599 [HL]WITH [/HL] the keyboard. If you want to compare them actually closer then the 32GB iPad is still $599 while the Surface without the keyboard is ....$499. Now which one is cheaper? Go back to your ifan's and get something to really discuss.
    iWhat? Apple is crApple.

    The Surface is too expensive, the lack of a mature ecosystem for their products means they needed to provide incentive where they could via pricing.

    Y U So Mad Bro?

    So you just joined the forum just to complain that it was too expensive? Really no other posts, except to complain about the price compared to the iPad.
    I'm not mad, just pointing out how your trolling comment was inherently false.

    The price is cheaper than the iPad, the ecosystem will be there. I'm using Windows 8 and can tell you that apps are appearing everyday in the store, plus let's face it, how do you not develop apps for the brand that has more computers out there than anyone.

    I think them being priced the same as the iPad, with more memory AND a keyboard AND something closer to a full pc experience, is fierce competition. But we'll see

    I'm not making it up: Microsoft's Surface pricing could be 'a fatal mistake,' says analyst | ZDNet

    Even the MS apologists ZDNet agree they made a mistake. It should have priced $100 less across the board. My concern isn't about the device, it's their continued poor marketing choices.

    Yes, I joined and posted this because their mistake is huge and it was important enough for me to make a stink about.

    The funniest thing is that everyone I know considers me a Microsoft fanboy :lol:

    And yet it continues to sell briskly. Go figure...

    I read that article yesterday - the writer is bloody hack. He points to Zune and Kin as to why Microsoft will fail this time.

    There is a whole plethora of articles out there that point to Microsoft's imminent demise in the tablet (and smartphone of course) market. Some "journalists" still think it's 1995 and Bill Gates is forcing people to use Internet Explorer 4.

    I could give a crispy crap for the lot of them.

    The foretold demise of the PC industry, Microsoft, Intel, HP and the sort are grossly overstated.

    People wrote that the iPad would fail too, describing it as a big ipod. People write this stuff because they know people will read it. :P
