This is a real tablet with a real multitasking capabilities . However the price here are the deal breaker hopefully they dropped down the price for i7 .

Why do you really need the i7? The i5 is very very close in both CPU & iGPU performance

It's what you called future proofing. It's my preference over i5 besides I'm already using an i5 vaio.

The i7 models are complete rip-offs...

Beer at a stadium is a rip off because everyone wants beer at a stadium and there is no where else to get it. The i7 is not a rip off because there are plenty of cheaper alternatives and if someone doesn't mind spending the money for one then that is their prerogative.

Great reply! I might have to use this response in the future. :) But it's so true!

Good point. In that case, let me rephrase: The i7 models are completely overpriced...

If they put lower price, then this will harm their OEM partners.

You know what is a rip off..... A Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12 inch tablet.

The general/average consumer won't be attracted to these prices.

I'm buying because it's damn more useful than mere tablets like iPads. A 64GB iPad Air is $700. That's a $99 difference compared to the 64GB version of the Surface Pro 3. A SP3 can do way so much more worth FULL programs running from over 4 million, and you can expand that with a micro SD card. A 64 GB one seems practical enough, or get a still rare 128 GB card. iPads don't have memory expansions.

You don't seem like the average regular consumer….Looks like I offended someone, again. Also looks like someone had to bring Apple into this lmao. Tsk tsk. More obsessed with Apple than Apple themselves.

Microsoft is already selling Surface units at a loss from an article I've read. I remember spending slightly lower than $750 on an Intel Atom based netbook 6 years back. It had 80GB HDD, 2GB RAM, a 10" 600 by 1024 pixel screen. A 13" Mac Air at $999 for a 128GB version, and the 11" version starts at $899. What I'm getting at is the above high ended device Ultra book pricing range compared to the SP3 seems at par. No, these are not your regular affordable (now) netbooks or more expensive tablets that do less. $799 or $999 for a 128GB full Windows slate with a nifty kickstand and active digitizer sounds good to me.

I give it to Microsoft, they definitely made a beautiful table/hybrid device. But sadly, windows 8 is too much of a mess for me. I bought an Asus laptop that I love, but barely use it because of windows 8. It's unintuitive and not user friendly. Until they fix the software, these prices are just WAY too high

Touch screen is so good though :)

Just install Windows 7 or whatever OS you want Or spend 5 minutes to learn how to use Window 8 Or watch some videos on YouTube or google some articles IMO if you change a few settings Windows 8 becomes Windows 7 plus a much better start menu and in general much faster

In my opinion Windows 8 is a masterful OS besides Windows 7 is in Windows 8 desktop mode. People rag on Metro UI yet everybody is copying it, makes no sense.

Exactly Most the haters probably haven't even used it I have Windows 8.1 on both my hybrid (touchscreen) and my desktop (no touchscreen), works fine on both of them

There no real advantage to Windows 8 over Windows 7. Looking forward to Windows 9 design hopefully will be better.

It's been rumoured that Metro 2.0 is a UI overhaul

A more beautiful, faster, more productive homescreen etc are not advantages?. The Apple and iOS fanboys always #itch about Windows.
