Am I to understand the Series 9 doesn't have a almost $2000?

So judging by the specs... the tablet is just a more expensive surface pro? Yeah that'll win over some buyers.

$1900 and you can't even play modern games on high settings. Looks like I'll be lugging around heavy laptops a bit longer.

Keyboard dock is included and with that it also brings much more battery life, lighter and lap usability. With that said I think the price is too much. It is priced $471 more... is that really worthit? I mean you lose out on a Wacom system, a quality metal construction/look and the superior cover system of a Pro.

These hybrid devices are expensive but the best way to use Windows 8. If they start to make inexpensive hybrid tablets without using Atom processors then it'll start to take off.

Pretty sure a MBA with an i7, 8gb ram and a 512gb SSD costs the same ~$1899 as this 9 series ultrabook. Resolution is better (1440x900) vs the 1080 on this. I'd rather go with the the larger SSD and more ram for this price in the ultrabook category. I could lower down to the 256 SSD and install W8 as a dualboot if I wanted to and have the benefit of both OS's.

The ativ700 without LTE only costs 1099 (Including keyboard) and is basically identical to the surface pro 128 GB. This is actually cheaper than the surface pro with a keyboard. It has actually been available since october.

I'm not sure why the LTE version is $500 more. Does LTE service come included or does it have MS office included? Seems like a ripoff.
