Would You Pay $600 for a Microsoft Surface Tablet?
Early rumors suggest the starting price for a Surface tablet could be as high as $600, and that's for a model built around NVIDIA's Tegra 3 platform running Windows RT. For an Ivy Bridge-based Surface, cost of entry will start at around $800, DigiTimes reports.
If true, the majority may find the Surface's price points to be tough to swallow, particularly with Ultrabooks coming down in cost. Ultrabooks are a different category altogether, but they're also somewhat similar (from a portability standpoint) in that they're thin, light, have a keyboard, and in some cases, they also double as tablet PCs.
