Would love to see a price reduction on the Pro 128. That would be compelling.

I bought the Samsung Ativ Tab for about that price because I didn't want to pay $499+ and I like some specs of the Ativ better.

 

Had I waited, I would have jumped at this. But really want a Snapdragon 800 class RT device. I'll probably upgrade this fall.

I was contemplating a purchase - the price drop made the decision easier.  I have to say that I'm very impressed so far.

 

My original game plan was to go Surface Pro.  I expect to bring the unit into the field - fairly harsh environment - and the potential for damaging a $1000 piece of equipment was rather high.  Hopefully the RT is up to the task - with only a third of financial risk.

 

This should buy me some time to wait for the Haswell version of the Pro.

Microsoft Complete can alleviate the risk of damage.

 Indeed.  I suspect, though, that I'd become overly attached to the Surface Pro, and become overprotective.  If it can do everything required, the RT unit is destined for "harm's way".

I love my Pro, it feels like a more complete package, but the RT is amazing, and that's a great price.  I've just got to figure out how to upgrade to a Haswell.  I wish Microsoft had a good trade in option...
