Microsoft Surface v iPad: price
The defining factor in whether the Surface for Windows RT can mount a genuine challenge against the iPad is likely to be price. An entry-level iPad costs $499 - can Microsoft's new tablet better that?

But with plenty still to be revealed about this new challenger, we're looking forward to seeing how it fares.
