Let's hope indeed that the lower price would attract more users towards the Surface. I think just it's physical design is amazing and brilliant, I honestly feel that an iPad both looks and feels as a toy compared to the Surface that has a much more premium feel to it. I'm personally satisfied with the software part of the Surface RT as well (I dont need the apps cos I have full flash capability and I rarely play mobile games, and that said Halo: SA trumps most iPad games easily, need more games like that! :D) but I understand that it doesn't match everyone's needs, but most people would manage with it far better than they do with the iPad :D

this is bull****. shows in stock online here, and available at all the metro store locations. also, knowing how many Surfaces MS has sitting in a warehouse somewhere I'll never believe and "out of stock" situation for any product ever again.

The MS Store that I got my 1020 from was low on stock while I was there. I think I saw about 10 people buy an RT (actually pulled out their credit card with the RT in hand) while I was getting my phone and one of the reps told the manager that they were down to three in stock. The lower price is helping (if I was to get another one, I'd wait a couple more weeks for the back to school sales tax holiday hahaha).

low on stock and we can't make them fast enough out of stock are two different things. In the case of the Surface, low stock just means the sales associate hasn't went out back to the semi trailer to bring in another pallet of them.

I'm guessing they had low stock. It's still good that they're sold out, it means there's increased interest with the lowered price point. Still, I highly doubt Walmart just had a few million RTs lying around.
