The price isn't bad. The price wasn't bad on the original RT. Its a competitive price point with the ipad but you get a more capable product. Lots of people bashed the price and product without ever using it.

The Surface Pro 2 is one hell of a beastly thing, shame it's mainly built and made for professionals.

The Surface 2 on the other hand, meh... Think I'll keep my iPad 4, thank you very much, with the iPad4, Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 and Xperia Tablet Z all rocking far higher PPI displays, app stores with tons of apps, games, eBooks, Educational material made for them (the Apple and Samsung), the Surface 2 is going to have a very hard time.
Let's not forget, the iPad 5 is nearly here.

The app argument really needs to go. Android and apple's app catalog is filled with ports of websites (all my local news stations feel the need to have their own apps, for instance, which just have the same info as their website in condensed and abridged form), plus clones of apps (hundreds of fart noise apps, ringtone apps, web-based messaging apps, wallpapers, music, etc), redundant variations of other apps, etc.
