$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.

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.
