Microsoft and Google are Letting Apple Win
John Dvorak, PC Magazine
There are a lot of mispriced products out, and their cost will do nothing more than hurt sales. The Surface Pro tablet, which Microsoft announced pricing details for today, is a good example.
The Surface Pro is the long-awaited Microsoft tablet that runs x86 Windows 8 and thus all of the Windows software out there that normally runs on the desktop. It costs $899 for a 64GB model and $999 for a 128GB model. For much less than that, you can buy a loaded real PC and it will do a lot more, albeit in a stationary location.
This tablet will compete with the iPad, the Surface RT, the Nexus 10, and various tablets from Acer and the likes.
