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.

I gotta agree, I played with the Surface and its much better than the Android or iOS tablets.
Its fast and let you do everything you want.

I know everyone's boycotting microsoft 'n stuff, but otherwise, its actually pretty good..

I picked up the Surface for college as my first tablet due to the price cut. I absolutely love it, and the free office doesn't hurt either. The build quality is impressive, its responsive, I get Xbox enabled games, and my Xbox music.

Sure, it's not cool, and it won't earn me up votes since I'm not "b0yc0tting M$", but at the end of the day I just want to get stuff done and have fun. For all the crap this company receives, I've really liked the direction they've gone in the last few years. I appreciate the flattened, colorful, content centered design that's been introduced with Metro and WP7/8.
