    Ballmer won't commit to a price on Surface but says the sweet spot in the PC (laptop) market is $300 - $800. How is it that Apple and Amazon can do product announcements with specs, prices and ship dates, and Microsoft, what, less than a month out from the Surface release date hasn't announced full specs, prices and ship date. :confused:

    I'm so pissed right now and think Mr. Ballmer is the worst CEO ever. We need to know this ASAP. I mean, they still don't even have the holiday popup stores yet.

    What's the compelling reason to get a Surface Pro over an Ultrabook?

    You want a tablet with the power of an ultrabook.

    Really? They announced it like a couple of months ago I think. You would think they would give us something by now. But it did take them a long time to get the Kinect out but then again it didn't start out as a Microsoft project but a 3rd party.

    I'm still a bit skeptical it's going to provide the best of both worlds. When I need to do real work on a laptop I want a larger screen. Should be interesting to see how MS fares.
