Does the Surface Pro 3 cost too much?


The Surface Pro 3 looks awesome, but it’s not cheap. It’s also not expensive, per se, compared against devices with similar features and functionality. Although the Surface Pro 3 is, in fact, a tablet, it has the form and function of an ultrabook–so Microsoft is attempting to re-position the device as a rival to the MacBook Air rather than competition for the iPad.

Personally, I think the pricing of the Surface Pro 3 is high, but reasonable. I definitely think you get adequate value for the investment, especially compared against other similar devices like a MacBook Air. Not everyone agrees.
