Surface tablet with Windows RT to start from $300?

October 8, 2012

How-to website and publisher announced a competition in which it said that the lucky winner would receive a Surface tablet (running Windows RT) as well as a copy of the books Windows 8 for Dummies and Surface for Dummies.

The competition, first reported on by Microsoft News, said that the prize was worth $350. Given, then, that the Windows 8 and Surface books are priced at $24.99 and $19.99 respectively, that would leave the Surface tablet at an approximate but very reasonable price of $305.

This guesswork would certainly tie-in with Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer’s own hint that the Surface tablet could hit the 'sweet spot' between $300 and $800.

Microsoft announced last week that the first Surface tablets will become available at midnight on October 26, just hours after the official unveiling of Windows 8.
