Microsoft "Microsoft's Surface RT is getting price cuts across the world this week as the company looks to boost sales of its first ever tablet hardware." Great vote of confidence on a platform barely out the door.

Not Arm

MS should have made a lower powered Atom tablet instead of the Arm powered Rt. The main strength of MS is their backwards compatibility. By not running normal desktop applications they have put themselves in direct competition with Apple and Google. I would seriously consider a Surface Rt if it could run normal desktop applications. I know the Surface Pro exists, but $1,000 is kind of hard to swallow for something that isn't a primary machine.
