Agreed on this but I believe the price increase on other competitors is due to branding + Microsoft licensing on Windows 8.1 when added these two... it kinda make Microsoft surface pro 2 more worth to buy as these were made by Microsoft hence they can play around with how much charges for the branding and license.

Can consider the dell venue 11. If you compare I think Microsoft is actually the most ex. Think hp got one also.

Its like Sp2 pro ma..not avail in SG but people talking about it..plus importing in. If Sp2 or the Hp one come to SG sure grossly overpriced either way.Wont be surprised if tablet alone is 1k+ Heck..I find Sp2 pro pricing in USA expensive

Think Leneovo and Asus also got alternative..whether can get in SG or not is dif story

These tablets throttle..Even if you throw an i5/i3 inside it wouldnt run at full speed..the SP2pro throttles itself down at 70 degrees which isnt really hard to hit when you game on a tablet

I guess Microsoft scare of overheating issues might occur or the motherboard in the chip might shutdown due to temp too high as gaming normally kinda push your hardware to run a little higher depending on the settings.

Just sharing general info.. Apparently all MS devices are sent to Jabil if repair/replacement is required. Then Jabil will send defective set to overseas. Entire waiting duration should takes about 7-8 business days to come back to you. Crossing my fingers now.
