    That's right. Always expensive for our Aussie chums.

    It is £189 in UK.

    I blame it all on Ray8, I think he's pissed off Microsoft. How cold does it get in the UK.

    I got my pricing prediction wrong. I said it would cost $399 and was $0.99 off. What can I say. Just keep an eye out for my other predictions.

    How much do you predict for the Surface Pro in Australia, I can feel another trip coming on.

    The breadbasket version is approx US$600, so you work it out from there. And not many sell it:

    iPad - Android - Tablet PC - JB Hi-Fi

    You can still apparently get the boxed version of the Windows 8 Pro Upgrade for $58 from the shop Ray8 linked to:
    Microsoft Windows 8 Pro - Computer Software - JB Hi-Fi - Smashing Prices!

    The same is true in the UK; the boxed version is still available in some places for £45.

    However I imagine the prices may go up soon.

    I've got my quota, I'd just hate be a person who missed out, might as well splash out another few dollars and get the Surface, hmmmm, I wonder.

    Still plenty around on ebay and similar.

    Not sure they are even shifting at $40. I suppose they will ....eventually.

    Hi there
    Never mind guys

    Mind you at that price I won't be surprised to see THIS edition becoming popular again. for 40 USD not worth it but at 399 dollars a pop !!! wow. Costs almost as much as my Laptop. !!!!


    Cheers
