Microsoft Surface Tablet: Expect Prices Above $599

According to Digitimes, sources within the notebook industry are claiming that the assembly of the Microsoft’s Surface Tablet will be outsourced to Pegatron Technology. The same sources behind this news have also stated that the Surface with Windows RT and the Nvidia ARM based processor will be priced above $599 while the Pro Version will be priced at above $799. The differences between the two versions can be found HERE.

Although the price point of $799 for the Surface Pro seems quite steep, a 64Gb iPad that has WiFi and 3G costs about $829. Remember, the Surface Pro is essentially a PC with an Ivy Bridge Intel Core i5 processor in tablet form, so compared to an iPad with similar memory and connectivity offerings…$799 can be considered a steal.

These prices are far from verified but would you buy the Surface Tablet (RT or Pro) if it were priced above $599?

    I can say I would. With microsoft looking to push their presence in the living room even more with the Xbox 360 and upcoming Smartglass functionality between multiple devices, I could see how this tablet could be tailor-made to only better compliment that. Microsoft is really bringing it.

      I completely agree with you on this. I plan on getting the Pro version so knowing that it will be part of a larger ecosystem makes me feel that it will be an investment worth making. Couple that with the news of Windows Phone 8 devices and I would that the Microsoft of old is back
