Exactly, who would buy an RT nobled PC at those prices and the PRO is wayyyyyyyy more expensive than any comparable or better spec notebook.

Surface RT takes a $950 million hit while the iPad continues to outsell every other tablet. So glad I went with that!

If they sell the Surface pro by the same price as iPad and upgrade the OS to 8.1 I can consider to buy it!

I don't know what they were thinking with the Surface, it was obviously NOT going to sell. They should have made it $399 from the start.

When I first learnt about the Surface RT I read a price of $200 or something and would have been the first to try at that price but at the silly prices they expected there was just no way.

Microsoft seems to oscillate between OK and c**p. Win 95 & 98 were OK but then there was Millennium (Win ME) which was so bad that I refused the computer until the white box vendor loaded it with Win 98. Win XP is OK and I'm currently using it. I got stuck with Vista at work (minor nightmare and lots of IT calls) and the Windows 7 replacement cured many of the problems. I've heard enough about Windows 8 and 8.1 to know I want NO part of it. Windows 7 programs are now a hot "gray market" item and I might build a box from scratch with it. What will Windows 9 look like? Will someone please sell a Linux box and advertise it in Japan Today? Do they sell any in Akihabara?
