Many experts have questioned Microsoft's approach to pricing its new tablet, especially the fact that the entry-level model isn't bundled with a touch cover keypad -- something that Microsoft has focused on heavily in differentiating the Surface from all other tablets on the market.

To gauge consumer feeling on the subject, computerworld.com has been polling vistors to its site. Of 1652 visitors so far polled, 32.32 percent believe that Microsoft's pricing makes the Surface competitive with the iPad, whereas 30.15 percent believe that the Surface RT would only succeed if it was cheaper than the iPad. Only 9.6 percent believe that there was no competition as the iPad is a superior product.
