Hadn't paid attention too. Just looked at the specs. It's something I would kinda like if it had more storage and was about $300 less. Also only 1 USB input seems odd...

Pricing looks fine for the hardware.

There's pretty strong rumors that Microsoft is going to announce a Xbox branded gaming tablet in the future to work in conjunction with their new console. If that is true and you were in the market for a gaming tablet, that might be a better option.

As far as the non-gaming side of things go, Surface is neat but I feel way more comfortable within both the Android and iOS universes, particularly Android. Having a tablet that can run PC applications is neat, but I really dislike Windows 8 in all it's forms.

One of my co-workers loves his. As Orpheus mentioned, there might be something close to the horizon, though.

If I'm you, I hold off until this supposed Xbox announcement in May just to see if they announce anything there outside of the next Xbox.
