    This isn't anything new. Surface Pro was announced at the same time as Surface, it just wasn't going to ship until a few months later.

    So this thing will be in the 699-899 range? Intel just doesnt want to give up on those margins.

    More like $999 for 64GB and $1099 for 128GB. It's basically an Ultrabook, it will be priced like one. Don't expect anything less.

    I´m sure its a bad translation and means RAM. Screen will be 1920*1080 as well I guess.

    This. I don't see that as a terrible price at all for what you're getting. It's comparatively priced with other ultrabooks, but in a tablet form factor with touchscreen/digitizer. However, for that price I definitely think they should be including a keyboard cover.

    I'm curious to see the business grade Lenovo products that come as a reaction to this. You know, on the "ThinkPad" line.
