MS should've given them different names, e.g. keep the RT as the "Surface" but rename the Pro to "Slate" or something. The two are worlds apart in both functionality and price, something which the moniker "Pro" fails to convey to the general public. Apple doesn't call the MacBook Air the "iPad Pro."

Or at least that's my take.

It doesn't, but the point is that the Pro is marketed to compete on the same level as the MB Air, and the Surface is marketed to compete on the same level as the iPad.

At any rate, it's an example of how Apple has differentiated its products in a way that MS has notably failed. Apple has never made any indication that iOS and OSX are comparable in any way, which is exactly what MS does with 8 and RT, by which MS has inadvertently placed the their own OS's in competition with each other.
