Microsoft targets iPad pricing

Microsoft has gone official with pricing on its Surface RT tablets. Most people have been hoping the Microsoft Surface RT tablets would come in at less than Apple’s hugely popular iPad. However, Microsoft’s pricing puts Surface in close competition with comparable third generation iPads and higher than the iPad 2.
The 32GB Windows Surface RT tablet without the Black Touch cover, which also doubles as a keyboard, is $499. That makes it $100 more expensive than the entry-level Apple iPad 2 at $399. The $499 entry price for the Surface RT tablet puts it on par with pricing for the 16GB “New iPad”.
If you want the Touch Cover with its integrated keyboard, that option is $100 when you order, or $119.99 as an add-on later. You can pre-order the 32GB version with the cover for $599.
The third version has 64 GB of storage and ships with the Touch Cover – it will cost you $699. Any of the three tablet versions can be pre-ordered today with delivery expected by October 26.
Analysts seem to think that Windows 8 tablet pricing is too expensive, however, what do you guys think?

If you present a fact then a standard cheesewiz reply is "that's your opinion" or something else similarly stupid along those lines.
Wrong...on all accounts. And saying that it's a fact that yourself is credible, that's not a fact to anyone but the person who said it.

When people present real facts, then that's a different story.

As for your ignorant comment, who gives a flying fuck what you have to say? Not anyone here...

Dude don't even respond to bullshit like that. If you posted the exact same way, yet agreed with him, he wouldn't say a word about your "standard replies".

I've seen you dismiss posts backed up by sales figures, growth numbers, and hard benchmarks as "opinion".

When people present real facts it isn't a different story, because that's exactly what you do.
