$499 Microsoft Surface with Windows RT is Sold Out

Microsoft has started to take pre-orders of the Surface with Windows 8 RT yesterday. Prices start at $499 for a 32GB Surface tablet. Now you have to pay at least $599 to pre-order one of the first Surface tablet. The basic $499 Surface has now sold out of its initial inventory. The updated shipping time frame for the base model is now 3 weeks. I anyway recommend though to get the $599 Surface with Windows RT as it comes with the cool keyboard Surface Touch cover.

 

Surface with Windows RT will initially be available in three SKUs: a 32GB version priced at US$499, a 32GB version bundled with a black Touch Cover priced at US$599, and a 64GB version bundled with a black Touch Cover priced at US$699.

You can pre-order the Surface tablet on the Microsoft Store.

Surface will be available for purchase beginning Oct. 26, 2012, at all Microsoft Store locations in the United States and Canada, including in all 34 new holiday stores. In addition, Surface will be available for sale online in eight markets across the world: Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom and the United States.
