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.

You could make Furby AD compatible but that doesn't mean enterprise will buy it.

Surface can't:

1. Run $internal_application

2. Run Windows applications.

3. Run $plug_in required for intranet or Citrix

99% of enterprise computers are on desks and don't need to go anywhere. Surface doesn't offer enough benefits over a laptop to make it worth purchasing.

Disclosure: I'm a .NET enterprise developer and I think Windows 8 is a POS.
