Product Pricing and The Verge

...I won't care if Apple has a Retina display-equipped iPad mini up its sleeve. For $100 less than the iPad mini, I'll get a lot more from the Nexus 7. -David Pierce, 2013 Nexus 7 review

This is what bothers me. Honestly, I don't see why the price of the product should influence whether or not it's competitor is any better. I mean, for almost $70 more, you can get last year's iPad mini, still a great product.

Honestly, why would you get one of those when you can get the full size iPad 2 for $399?

I can tell you why you shouldn't. It's because you'd be paying for a two year old processor. That's lame. For only $50 more, you can get a Surface 2, arguably better than the iPad which would just tumble to the ground if you tried to make it stand.

Really though, for just another Benjamin why wouldn't you get the iPad Air which is insanely light and has the best tablet ecosystem out there.

Well that's also wrong, because you can get the Surface Pro 2 for just $899. With it's awesome all day battery life and productivity and such a compact form factor, it's really a no brainer.

Well that is, if you really don't have a brain. For a $100 more, you can get a Macbook Air.

Forreal though, we need to get Joanna back.
