Surface 3 (not Pro) on pre-order now.  Runs full 8.1 on an Intel atom quad 2.6ghz(burst).
So the smaller version of the surface still exists just no longer in the RT form.

By the way @pyromania  iOS has no support for a mouse. And nor should it. It's a touch device.

Glad to see Windows RT has been shown the door. New machine looks decent, but is too expensive for what it's offering. If they included the keyboard and pen at the $600 price point I could be persuaded.

I read $499, but still pricey for a 10" tablet, although USB 3.0 is not common for tablets this size.  Battery life is good as is screen resolution.
