Surafce is available for pre-order @ http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msca/en_CA/pdp/productID.257918700.

It is priced at $519 in Canada. looks very impressive but costly.

Much cheaper than an Ipad if you consider that it has a USB port, HDMI out port, MicroSDXC all built in. So for instance, you can buy a 32 gb and then buy a 64 gb card and expand storage significantly. Buy the accessories with an IPAD and you're close to about 800-900 bucks for the same thing.

Plus it comes with MS Office 2013 pre-installed - that alone is a couple of hundred bucks. This is intended to be a productivity machine along with being a toy or a book reader.

BTW, this is the RT version which runs Windows 8 on ARM. The PRO version, to be released in a couple of months will have a Intel Core I5 processor and run full fledged Windows 8 on it (as opposed to the ARM version). So you've basically got the full ecosystem for Windows already built in and an enterprise ready laptop condensed into a tablet form factor, which is pretty amazing.

yep cheaper compared to ipad but will cost approx $ 800 (519 + 139 + 44 + HST)

If someone is shopping for tablet than surface is better choice and value for money as compared to ipad.

Here's a great comparison. These are US numbers though, mind you.

Impressive!

By the look of things, you really can't beat the Pro version. Not sure if Intel WiDi will be supported on it (it does for most of the i5 processor laptops though). If it will, then you don't even need an HDMI to connect to your TV. Just buy a WiDi supported device (Netgear NeoTV: $75 USD, taxes included - just bought one myself). Be a happy camper and enjoy your media wirelessly on your big screen TV.

Now, give me an iPAD that could beat it. I know, I know Airplay, but who wants to buy an overinflated Apple TV. can already see the sleepless nights for Apple executives.
