Surface 2 Pricing | Mobile devices content from Paul Thurrott's SuperSite for Windows

Priced more like a fridge than a toaster, and a high-end fridge at that; check the full post for details. Let's see, a 256 GB MacBook Air for $1,299 or a 256 GB Surface Pro 2 for $1,299 plus keyboard/cover ($119.99 - $199.99), docking station ($199.99, plus another $39.99 if you need a mini DisplayPort adapter), + ... TBD if the fully-loaded Surface 2 Pro price was deliberately set at approximately the same price as a similar-equipped MacBook Air and an iPad with Retina display.
"Product pricing was among the few details about Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 that I wasn't privy to prior to Monday's launch event. But now that Microsoft has announced pricing for these devices and various accessories, it's time to take a look and see whether they've learned perhaps the single most important lesson from the original devices, which were too expensive.
And the answer, fairly obviously, is no, not really."
