So how much would you pay?
My thinking is the recent price cuts to the current line have generated a customer expectation that these devices will be 'competitively priced' and we all know who the competition is.
So, for the Pro I want to hear "cheaper than a MacBook Air". It's a replacement for a laptop, but it isn't double the price.
If they really want to make this attractive they can throw in Office, that would make it a serious Ultrabook alternative.
For the RT replacement which wants to be called 'just Surface 2, thanks', I want to hear "cheaper than an iPad", thanks.
If these don't come with something pretty similar to Office then forget it.
The pricing should include a least the basic touch cover, paying more for one with a battery as rumoured is fair enough but nobody is seriously considering buying one of these things without some kind of typing keyboard. The marketing always emphasises the typing keyboard, include it.
I'm actually pretty excited about this launch and if they price the either properly I'd be interested in actually buying one. Either way it will be interesting to see how much MS have actually taken on board from consumer 'feedback'.
So, what about you all?
