Microsoft Surface 2, Surface Pro 2 tablets now on pre-order
Right on cue, Microsoft started accepting pre-orders for its latest tablets – the Surface 2 and the Surface Pro 2. Both models are now available from the company's online store, expected to ship on or around October 22.

Price-wise, all is as expected. The Windows 8.1 RT powered Microsoft Surface 2 with 32GB of storage is priced at $449, while the 64GB model costs $100 extra. As for the Windows 8.1 Pro variant, the Microsoft Surface Pro 2 starts at $899. That gets you 64GB of SSD storage and 4GB of RAM, but there's an option to get a 128GB SSD instead for an additional $100.

Currently, the top Surface Pro 2 model – the one with a 512GB SSD and 8GB of RAM – isn't available. Those who are interested in it and don't mind its $1799 price tag have the option to sign up for an email alert when the tablet is ready to be pre-ordered. 

To pre-order a Surface 2 or a Surface Pro 2 tablet, visit the Microsoft Store

why 449$? if MS want to compete with iPad, they should take Google's approach, sell Surface at minimum profit, 300$-349$ should be an appropriate price ...

I agree it should be cheaper for the rt.. With that being said I don't think the n10 took many sales away from the iPad.

That because n10 is a geek tablet, iPad still hold the overall appeal to the general public years of marketing by Apple and fans.
