    It's evidently going to be something pointless. Like a GPU-accelerated cursor.

    So it's a tablet then.

    Or is it? Maybe it's a second screen for the pc.

    The cover is a keyboard... that's actually pretty cool.

    Wasn't expected to be interested at all...

    Now I'm wondering how much does it cost?!

    It's going to be incredibly expensive.

    Has to be. Now it doesn't have a crappy ARM processor; has the full windows desktop; and you can use a proper stylus with it...

    WANT.

    What does "Priced to competitive rates with Arm tablets" mean?

    Ah, found the specs.

    There's two versions. One with Windows RT and one with Windows 8 Pro. I'm assuming Windows RT is Windows 8 with just Metro.

    Priced like comparable tablets based on ARM? Intriguing.

    It'll be interesting to see how it does, looks great.

    Yeah, RT is Windows Lite, only works with App store stuff. Windows Pro is full version run anything Windows.

    "Now let me talk about availability and pricing."

    What happened to the availability part?

    From the press release:

    Surface for Windows RT will release with the general availability of Windows 8, and the Windows 8 Pro model will be available about 90 days later. Both will be sold in the Microsoft Store locations in the U.S. and available through select online Microsoft Stores.
    So should be August I think.

    This looks amazing. Seems to have all the functionality of a laptop, but in the form of a tablet.

    Only problem is the Intel tablet is set to price about the same as an ultrabook, and no one's buying ultrabooks because they're still too bloody expensive. Meanwhile, the ARM tablet looks to cost the same as other ARM tablets (I hope they're referring to Android things, rather than iPads) but features a locked down OS with missing APIs and an (at present) completely empty app store.

    It means it'll be about 200 - 300.
