Surface Pro starts at $899

Microsoft originally told us that Surface Pro would bow in the January of this year, but it looks as though the Redmond, Washington-based company is running a bit behind schedule. Microsoft announced today that Surface Pro would actually launch on February 9 in the U.S. and Canada.
 
Unlike Surface RT, which runs Windows RT and lacks Windows software backwards compatibility due to its use of an ARM processor, Surface Pro can handle the entire Windows library thanks to Windows 8 Pro. The tablet packs in a Core i5 processor, 1080p display, Mini DisplayPort, and a USB 3.0 port. The tablet is also much pricier than its Surface RT counterpart, which starts at $499. The 64GB version is priced at $899 while the 128GB model will cost you $999.

at that price.

Says the millions of people who buy Macbook Airs. Surface Pro has better specs, is a fraction of the size, and more expandability than MBA, at a similar price point. Plus it's touch.

How is it a bad price? This device is not to be compared to your basic run of the mill Android cheapo tablet.
