    The 8GB/128GB version is really tempting as a personal go about laptop!

    Will have to see some reviews but the value proposition of what you get in that at the 500 pound price point is phenomenal.

    Remember that's a straight Dollar to Pound conversion. It would not surprise me to see the actual selling price in the UK to be a fair bit higher. Also, do we know if this is a stripped down version of Windows and limited?

    With those specs, I'd be very surprised if it was.

    UK prices come direct from Microsoft UK website. (except for the 4GB/128GB middle-diddle which is CostCo US only for now)

    Comes with windows (home iirc) in S mode... basically it's full windows you just need to jump through a few hoops to disable S mode and get full access (one time, one direction thing).

    I'm sure you could upgrade to pro quite easily!

    128GB -8GB RAM is pre order price £509 in the UK.
    Add a type cover and Surface Pen at £99.99 each and your looking at £708.98. Get a lot of laptop for that.
    The bezel as well is rather large for this day and age.

    It's absurd that the pen is £99.99.

    That's double what it used to cost two years back.

    However, I don't think it's fair to compare the with pen price against a laptop, as this is really an ultraportable for £610 for surface and cover. There isn't much that matches it.

    While I agree the price for the MS pen is too high, you shouldn't need to use the microsoft pen as I believe it uses the same 'standardised' format that is on the surface pro meaning you can use a wacom(such as wacom bamboo ink) for example which is cheaper at around £70 (still a bit high imo but this should work on most stylus supporting displays).

    I think that price is without the keyboard lol. Type cover is normally extra.

    (sorry, double posting)
