Microsoft Surface starts at $499

Microsoft has revealed the pricing of the entry-level Microsoft Surface Windows 8 tablet. AT least TechCrunch got already the information. The link to the Microsoft Store that is supposed the source of the information redirects to Bing. In any case, I assume TechCrunch got briefed by Microsoft. The Microsoft Surface RT tablet with 32GB RAM sells for $499. The 32GB Surface RT with touch cover sells for $599.

The top of the line 64GB Surface with touch cover sells for $699. 

The Microsoft Surface pricing is comparable to the iPad 3 pricing. You are actually getting double the storage with the Microsoft Surface tablet at the same price. I think this is good pricing and will help Microsoft sell Surface tablets in big number this Holiday season. Microsoft Windows 8 partners have now a big problem on their hands. They are too expensive and the Surface is damn sexy.

We expect the Microsoft Surface pre-order to start today.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
