    The newly announced Surface Go starts at $399. Do you think the price is right, too high or too low?

    I think so too. I'm interested in how this will feel to use versus the 2017 Surface Pro.

    I'm wondering if you mean cheap in a good way or in a bad way?

    I think it’s reasonable, but I also think they really should bundle either the keyboard or pen with it.

    That's a great suggestion considering the price point. I wish that they would, but hopefully Best Buy, along with others will do so.

    Maybe.

    Maybe a half off or something offer along with buying one.

    Has the Microsoft store ever put an offer like that out there for their Surface products for the pen or type pad cover?

    I don't recall them doing this (I can be wrong though), but I have seen sales on those things separately.

    Seems more than reasonable considering their targeted competitor (iPad 9.7) costs just a bit less, isn't a full blown desktop-class tablet and doesn't include a stylus or keyboard either. Even with a keyboard, the iPad can't use a trackpad so there's that too.

    You're so right. Whoa I totally forgot about the trackpad. That makes such a big difference.

    Pretty sure I need to get one of these. But I gotta figure out if the extra RAM and the SSD is worth the extra coin for me.

    I would be buying the $550 model and the $100 keyboard cover if I got one. I think $650 is too costly for what this is. I would pay $550 if it included the keyboard cover as well.

    They should lease stuff like this so students and low-pay losers can pay a deposit plus a monthly fee... device gets disabled remotely for non-payment. Can return the device at any time (end of study or upgrade), lower lease price for already-leased units.

    Keyboard and mouse should've been included or at least half off for the accessories lol, but I understand the move.

    Nonetheless it's an attractive price

    If it is good enough for drawing and painting with pen, it may have a chance. At least it would be faster than my hobby laptop with C2 T5600, bigger (though not much wider for Netflix) than 8" Lenovo android tablet and better use (to prevent religious fight: for me) for 399 - or a bit more in eur, but divided over 36 months, if operators take it 🤔 - than any phone 😀

    I could swap IR facial sensor for more memory in case OEM manufacturer is listening 😉

    I think it likely the make next to no profit from the main tablet, and intend to make profits entirely from accessories. As such, if they were bundled it seems likely the main tablet would cost more.

    If you want both for cheaper you'll have to wait. Personally I reckon the price is about right. Not everyone needs the all accessories. If you want just the stylus for example, that's much more reasonable an expectation given this device is small enough to not always use it in laptop mode.

    Yeah I also couldn't care less about lock features, like fingerprints, facial scanners etc.

    That can always make a combo offer. Just to get the sales started with a bang.

    Microsoft could make a bigger impact by throwing in the TypeCover or pen.
    The downside of every Surface is that it doesn't include the keyboard which is definitely necessary to make the device usable.

    I think the price is too high if there is no cover.

    I think the price is in line with the other Surface offerings. This gives other OEMs some room to have lower cost alternatives.

    $350 would sound good. Otherwise, I'm waiting to see what happens with the next ARM chip.

    Waiting to see those benchmarks on that chip! It'll be interesting to see how it compares both in processing power and gaming capabilities. (though I imagine a decisive win for the iPad's GPU)

    For me, it's much too expensive and it's a-no-go (!). $400 should be the price tapcover included at the maximum.

    I know they compare themselves with iPad, while it would make sense to look at the Chromebook market:
    I just bought a very good Acer 11 with touchscreen and all for $200+.
    OK it's not a 2-1 but it's a great laptop.
    As a father, why should I spend $400 for a tablet, while you have to cash more to add up a keyboard?

    Look at the competitors of the Surface Pro who are able to produce 1st class clones only at a fraction of the Surface tablet price - only that they throw in keyboard and stylus.

    I don't really understand how Microsoft hopes to enter the masses market at an elite price?
