First it was Lenovo copying the Microsoft Surface, then Apple came out with the iPad Pro which was clearly inspired by it. It's time to admit that Microsoft had a really great idea.

Now even Google has a Surface-ish new tablet.

Google announced its tablet, the Pixel C, and as soon as the specs and images were released we realized that we've seen this all before. The sleek aluminum design with no visible rivets and screws. The small-but-powerful camera and attachable keyboard. It all seemed a little too familiar.

That's because Google's Pixel C shares many of the same qualities as the iPad Pro and Microsoft Surface Pro. It has a 10.2-inch, 2560 x 1800 screen and can then adjust from 100 to 135 degrees. The Pixel C is also one of the first Google gadgets to come equipped with Android's new operating system Marshmallow.

The main difference is the price.

The Pixel C will be $500 for 32 gigabytes (GB) of memory storage and $600 for 64GB. Comparably, most basic model of the iPad Pro costs $799 for 32GB of storage. And if you have nearly a grand to spend, $949 will get you a 128GB iPad.

Check out the pictures below to see if the Pixel C is up your alley:
