Windows After yesterday's TV advertisement, Microsoft finally unveiled the pricing for its Surface tablet - the ARM Windows RT version that is. The cheapest Surface - 32GB without touch cover - will set you back $499. They're aiming straight for iPad pricing here, ignoring the popular cheaper Android offerings. Update: only available in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom and the United States. As usual.

Why?

For that POS! $500 is a lot of money!
Maybe at $300, but no higher.

They are trying to be another Apple... and I know Apple! they are no Apple! (in the political spirit of the moment:)

It looks well made, but the keyboard looks a bit iffy. It is hardly a Piece of shit.

This is out of MS's comfort zone and MS has proved time and time again that they cannot perform outside there comfort zone (Zune, WinCE, Windows Phone...).
