I have always wanted one of these but Microsoft target these as laptop and tablet killers however the greedy fools don't bundle the keyboards with them and expect people to pay over £100 more for a keyboard. oO

They then overprice the crap out of it and its no wonder they don't sell well. If they bundled the keyboard cover with it at that price I would have bought one but I refuse to be a mug.

They're predominately targeted at professional use. Their price does appear poor value when lined up against other consumer items but if you're using it professionally, the modest improvements over cheaper consumer grade items make more sense.

If you use your device to make your living that premium can be justified.

Third party version for under £21: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B019TNVVMY

Or you can just use any USB or Bluetooth keyboard/mouse.

Don't forget the M3 version can currently be had for £566 with cashback (or even less with trade-in):

Add the keyboard cover above and you're looking at £587 all-in. That's for a premium, magnesium-build tablet/laptop hybrid with a 2736 x 1824 high DPI screen and pen input. It even includes the Adobe CC bundle, worth roughly £100. How is that overpriced?

An equivalent iPad Pro (12.9 / 128Gb) will cost £799 without the keyboard (£139) and pencil (£79). Given what even the Core M Surface can do, it's a bargain at these prices.
