    Hi Sarah,

    There's two keyboard/cover accessory options: touch cover and type cover.  Touch cover is $119.99 and Type cover is $129.99.  You can find the details on the Surface accessories page at…/home

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Chris,

    In comparison to an iPad consumer device, please check out Surface for Windows RT at…/home.

    Surface with Windows 8 Pro is a real business PC that can do heavy-duty work, just like a full laptop or desktop, in addition to being a great consumption device.  As a result, it's pricing is comparable to what you find for business ultrabook type devices.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Zwen,

    The Surface with Windows 8 Pro is really comparable to an Ultrabook – in a very sleek slate form factor.  If you compare the hardware specs (processor, memory, storage, etc), it shouldn't be a surprise that the pricing is close to a traditional Ultrabook because the hardware spec's are very similar – to provide the convenience of a consumer device form factor with the power, security, management and expandability needed in a business PC.

    Hope this helps!

    Seriously? 899 for the 64GB version, are you guys forcing me to adopt iPads? Come on, be more competitive.

    So how much for the keyboard?

  6. Zwen T says:

    You got to be kidding.  By the time I get the Surface and the keyboard, etc.. I might as well get a Dell Ultrabook or other laptop.

    It really is funny to see people talking about the price (but the keyboard should really be included). People have been saying for years, "Yea the ipad is nice, but I need to do real work on a tablet". Well, here it is, the 1st tablet with a real enterprise OS. Yes it costs more than the iPad, but then it's not really a "pad" now, is it?

    Well, if you look at any tablet pc out right now (one with a pen…that alone has incredible value) and this is incredible.  There hasn't been any specs on the cpu speed, but I'll be ordering one as soon as it is available.  Also, there are very few 10" tablets with a full 1080p screen.  

    This is fairly impressive for what you'd pay for a comparable tablet pc.
