» Microsoft Surface Models Priced at $599 for RT and $999 for Pro

Comparable to the iPad, without the entry level of the iPad 2 or 16 GB new iPad.

Looks like it includes the Touch Cover at that price but not, of course, two important features of the iPad: a Retina display and the security of knowing that the device has never been down Steve Ballmer’s pants.

I’m not saying Ballmer puts every Surface down his pants. I’m just saying that if you buy an iPad, you know it has never been down his pants.

That’s all I’m saying.
