$499 without the touch cover keyboard $599 with the touch cover keyboard The touch keyboard is sold separately for $119.99 and the type cover will be $129.99. http://www.theverge.com/2012/10/16/3271243/microsoft-surface-tablet-pricing-availability Those prices will get you the RT version with an ARM processor (Tegra 3), 32GB of flash storage, 1366x768 display, 31.5 Wh battery and Windows RT. Still no word on the Pro version. This is more pricy than I expected. What do you think? Does running Windows RT justify the high price?
