Thinking of buying Microsoft’s Surface tablet? Well, prepare to shell out big bucks. A Swedish website has posted prices of all four variants of the tablet and it’s not looking good price-wise. When converted into dollars, the cheapest surface tablet comes out at around $1001 (Php 42 161) which is far beyond the starting price of their main rival, the new iPad. Microsoft has said during the official unveil of the Surface that they would price the RT version of the tablet competitively against other ARM tablets floating in the market today. Hopefully Microsoft clears the air with their official word or else the Surface tablet is dead before it even begins to gain traction.
