    Is there any way claims of a $199 Microsoft Surface RT makes sense?


    In the past week, we've heard two different claims that Microsoft is planning to price the ARM-based version of its Surface tablet at $199. (Claim one, claim two)

    Is there any way these rumors could possibly be true? Especially given the fact the Surface hardware is custom-made-to-order and likely to be available in small quantities out of the gate? (And, based on the limited time the press and analysts had with the devices, of seemingly super-high quality for which one would expect to pay a premium price?)

    Microsoft is not commenting on the $199 rumor. I can't get a "no comment." Just no response at all from the Windows team.

    Update: A Windows spokesperson said the company had "no comment on rumors or speculation."

    Balls, if Microsoft ACTUALLY sells the Surface RT at 200, imagine what Pro will cost!

You probably saw that story a while back. The author's guess at what the eventual pricing may be seems like a good stab. I am curious if many people think Surfi will sell in decent numbers at $600 or $1000. Oem's will be slotting in wherever they can - below that mainly, I would think. ...
