Did Microsoft price the Surface tablet too high?

What do you think? Is $500 a good price for a 32 GB Surface tablet? Is Microsoft really going to be able to sell 5 million of these things in this quarter?

I agree with @pasmith here - It's too $$ :

Yes, Surface is overpriced. Soon Microsoft will be following in the unenviable footsteps of HP and RIM, both of which had to slash tablet prices in the face of poor sales. Look how things turned out for them.

It's too high for what that tablet has to offer. I doubt it will get many people to switch from the iPad or Android tablets. There just isn't enough there, particularly apps, for people to get excited about buying one.
