    Wow...$650 for a 10" tablet?? You could build a semi-decent gaming PC for that much.

    But you don't understand! It's a Windows 8 Tablet. So it has to be like a million times better than all the Android tablets, just because it's Windows. So a million times better, but only 3 times the cost of a Nexus 7. It's a better deal! In case anyone missed it, that's sarcasm. Microsoft is digging their own grave.

    but its shiny and colorful and has a touchscreen. /sarcasm

    For that price, you can get a decent gaming laptop...my $400 laptop can play BF3 on low/medium, so what can you get for 650? better than that...

    Umm most 64GB, 10 inch tablets are in the $600 or more price range actually and yes that includes Android ones. BTW Nexus 10 with 32GB is $500 about how much do you think a 64GB version would cost? Oh yes around $600 or more (BTW comparing a 7 inch tablet to a 10 inch one is not a good thing to do).

    You must work for Microsoft, because you don't get it either. Tablets have become an accessory device, not a replacement device. The Windows 8 Tablet sales have been modest at best, per Microsoft, and there's a reason for that. People don't want to shell out another $600 for a tablet which most people consider a companion to their PC or Laptop. Besides that fact that you probably don't need 64GB on a tablet considering you can store everything in the cloud and pull it down as necessary.

    No, I don't work for MS, BTW not everyone who doesn't agree with you works for "The Man". I was commenting on the people who were apparently making an issue of Microsofts 64GB tablet being expensive when all 64GB tablets are the same price range. If you would have slowed down and actually read the post I quoted you would see that, I agree that they are very overpriced but that wasn't the point I was making.
