No doubt, timing is very important to the success of a product, in particular, a new product. Apple launched iPhone 3 in a relatively moderate economy. Although it was priced extremely high compared to the other mobile phones in the market, it is a great success. Since then, Apple stock has been going against the flow of economy. The story leaves a lot of people puzzling. I am sure Microsoft executives are among the group. Ultrabook is priced pretty high compared to PC laptop. Yet, most of them are not more expensive than a Macbook Air. So, what would be the right price. Pricing model is always tricky. Macbook, to most people, is still expensive. Yet, there is no doubt a market. How is the market responding Surface? I think to the end of the day the fate of Surface is determined by whether it will fulfill the wishes of consumers.
