    Microsoft's 128GB Surface Pro sells out within hours


    Just hours after Microsoft Surface Windows 8 Pro went on sale Saturday, the 128GB version of the tablet sold out online.

    Shoppers for $1000 tablet at the online outlets of Best Buy and Staples, as well as Microsoft's own web store, began seeing "not available" or "out of stock" notices just hours after midnight Eastern Time when the Windows 8 slate went on sale

    I think we all know that.

    Not hard to do if MS stores had about 150 units each and Best Buy got 1 or 2 each at most.

    Strange. I wonder why.

    Come on, I think that the Surface Pro is quite sleek. And nice. And pretty.
    Though I am pretty sure that flimsy piece at the back will fall off in a couple of months.

    PR is going into overdrive.
    Do they really need to do this?

    I didn't see this as a MS fluff piece. It's more about how could MS screw up and not be ready for demand. A Guy

    Old trick - keep supplies down and prices up. Mercedes worked that way for decades. There were times when they had a delivery schedules of 3 years - and people bought them.
