My problem with the prices are 2 things.
The touch cover is not standard, if I'm buying an tablet for $1000 and it's suppose to be a laptop as well, it should come standard with it. I shouldn't spend another $120 for the keyboard when this is suppose to be a laptop replacement. The 2nd problem is storage space. Which is why I chose the $1000 128 GB model. If you have a 64 GB laptop, take away the 5 GBs or so for software and security. Your down to a MAX of 59 GBs of space to install apps/software. Not including documents and others. So say you spend another $80 on a 500 GB external hard drive and saved every thing except programs to it, your still only able to install 59 GBs of programs, and if this is a laptop replacement, I need the 128 GBs of storage for just programs. An i5 with 4 GBs of ram is well enough to do basic tasks on a laptop. But installing apps from the App Store along with software downloads, you would run out of space way to quick with only 59 GBs. Think, iTunes + office alone will take up around 4 GBs of space. So your already looking at 1000 for device, 120 for cover, and 80 for extra harddrive. Total with tax upwards if around $1300. Just not worth it.

Actually this is just what was told to me so I can't confirm for myself. But word on the street is windows 8 that comes on the surface is 16gb. I hope that's a lie

Most of you are arguing that this tablet isn't right for you and it's over priced. The tablet isn't designed for the casual user. It is designed for business use. You need to look at it from its intended point of view and then make your decision. These tablet will most likely do very well in corporate America.

We should come together and sue ALL the companies for false advertising!!!! LOL!
I'm actually kinda mad about this, now! Just cuz a company has put in memory for the device doesn't mean we get what we pay for. I don't care how much HD Space their OS uses to run the machine; we should get the advertised memory. These companies should allot their OS memory separate from the machine's memory and either eat the cost or increase the price.

IMO I think the toshiba and Sony laptop/tablets do a better job than the Microsoft surface. The click on keyboard looks whack the built-in design is a much better idea.
And for people saying its to ve placed in between PC/Laptop and a smart phone its not the case. Because many people have tried to replace the computers with their tablet. Which just was not possible... until now. Full OS is the way to go. I previously scoffed at tablets before which were essentially bigger smartphones minus calling capability.
These New full OS tablets might change my mind... Provided they get the good apps developed and theres no major battery issues.
Plus I assume they can run Flash which is a big plus
