Do u think this will be a hit..

No.

Pro:

It's ultra-thin, light-weight designed by Microsoft in partnership with Intel, with removable keyboard.

Con:

1. Price is too high, basic price starting at $1,499.00

2. Microsoft partnership with Intel to produce the book has betrayed their long-time OEM partners (HP, Dell, etc)

Well, that's the point of con #1. They're trying to price themselves out of the market the OEM's choose to compete in. And besides, that damage was already done back in '12 - '13.

It'll probably be about as successful as their other Surface Pro devices, in that the sales numbers will be comparatively low, but the margin will be on par with Apple devices, so they'll still turn a profit and claim victory.
