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.

Support for Windows tablets is integrated in the operating system and Microsoft tools and services, which means less complexity and costs.


The support packages for RT tablets are an extra cost on top of the regular packages.

Windows RT does not support Active Directory. As I understand it, MS is changing the focus of active directory, and in the process creating the necessity for the extra RT support software.
