    I have a feeling this will be flattened by the iPad 5 next month…

    Near £1500 for a tablet… What the hell can this thing do?

    For that money I would expect something spectacular.

    Surely that price can’t be right ?

    £1439 = $2302 at current exchange rate, yet in the US the surface pro 2 is going for $899 ? Are these different models or something ?

    Who in their right mind is going to pay that amount for a tablet, I’d wince at paying that for a top end gaming rig!

    899 dollars vs 1.5k pounds.. even with tax on top that’s a massive and unwarranted jump.

    Good old “you’re not in the US” tax.

    It’s a shame they are so overpriced, I’m on the look out for a tablet.

    @6, I really have no idea about tablets that are this “high-end”. I mean can you do things on this that you could do on a comparably priced laptop?
