Microsoft let loose on the last detail of Surface today. It's cost.
Surface with Windows RT, 32 GB: $499
Surface with Windows RT, 32 GB with Black Touch Cover: $599
Surface with Windows RT, 64 GB with Black Touch Cover: $699
Surface Touch Cover (white, red, black, cyan, or pink): $120
Surface Type Cover: $130
The Type Cover looks great for productivity and writing. The touch cover may be more suited for recreational or light use.
Did the pricing surprise you? I happen to think the price is right even though if it was lower I think it would certainly sell more. The reaction I have seen is that the price is forcing folks to take a look at their budget instead of making the purchase instantly. Most of the talk I have seen and heard is people now considering an OEM Pro tablet or flat out waiting for Surface Pro.
It has Office on it! Don't forget that! Let's take a look at a few more items.
Ohhhhh, this list. I think we have a lot to talk about in the forums and on future podcasts. Please join the forum and let your voice be heard. Are you in for one?
