    At least, I can't imagine this thing running on at least an i5, probably a i7 processor and who knows what graphics set. This has to be in the range of a high end Surface. Those thinking $300-$500 are dreaming.

    I know right?! If it was 500$ Microsoft would lose a crap load of money!

    If they want to sell this to consumers it'll have to be closer to $500. I wouldn't be surprised if they sold this initially to Enterprise/Business customers at the higher price points, but honestly I wouldn't put it past Microsoft to lose money on this in order to get a leg up on Facebook and other VR/AR competitors.

    $499 for consumer version and $699 for pro version.

    I think there will be at least 3 version of these- 1. consumer/gaming 2. Enterprise 3. Government

    1. consumer - $300-500
    2. Enterprise - $ 500-above
    3. Government - $1000 above

    Could be anything, won't be less than $500, probably no more than $1500, $990 is probably a decent guess

    Quoting myself from another thread:

    I think anyone who is thinking that this will be priced around $499 is looking for their hopes to be crushed, and then will blame Microsoft for the HoloLens being "too expensive". If it is under $1000, that would be awesome. But it's hard for me to see something like this being under a grand.

    That's a little pricy. I believe it should be in the range of $500 - $1000. I know this is a first generation device and every first generation is expensive. But MS cannot make the same mistake Google made and that they made with the Xbox One. Trust me that is something that they are discussing right now. I believe the profit margin will be close to the minimum for the Hololens so it can be in more hands than warehouses inventories. I do not think Mr. Nadella will make the same errors Mr. Balmer made pricing wise.

    Xbox One pricing wasn't a mistake, they still sold millions at 500$. Just because ps4 won sales by a small amount(yes, what was it 2 million, is a small amount). But I agree with the Google Glass being a flop. Somewhat. And does anyone know what the hardware in it is? You could probably come up with a price estimate through that.

    HoloLens is running on the unreleased Intel Atom Cherry Trail. My guess is a price of $600-$1000.


    A top of the line Atom tablet with a big battery like Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro costs $500 (13"), $370 (10").
    A Kinect 2.0 sensor for PC costs $200.

    That's why I would say the minimum price is at least $600.


    Where things get tricky to figure out is what the HPU and holographic display cost.

    Damn. Lol, nice. I'm totally fine with $500-$1000

    But that's with Bay Trail, not Cherry Trail. I know it's still an Atom chipset, but it brings a lot of new capabilities. Maybe that could drive the price up too. I really don't see the HoloLens being that affordable. I'd love to be proven wrong, but I think people are getting their hopes up

    I think most people just want to get their hands on one at almost any costs. I would guess that the console will cost around 1500 and another 500-700 for the headset. It's a lot but I would still buy it.

    i would think that something using this type of technology would be in the 10,000 dollar range. But if they want to compete with google glass then 1500-2000 would be the way to do it

    I can tell you 10 grand is far off, trust me. But the hardware behind it isn't incredibly expensive. 1000-2000$(USD) is my conclusion from large amounts of research and collecting of opinions.

    Also remember the R&D costs probably factoring in, as well as being new and the tech outside of just the specs.

    A top of the line Atom tablet with a big battery does not have to cost $500. Thats just part of Lenovo's profit margin. As microsoft has down with the Xbox, they are willing to lose money on the hardware to sell services. A top of the line Atom tablet only costs about $100 to make. We already see HP Atom tablets for $99. And any argument about Cherry trail vs ivy trail doesn't hold water because Intel traditionally does not price its lower end chips that way. I bet that chip will cost no more than $20 in the quantities Microsoft will order them in,

    The Kinect 2 sensor was priced at $200 only because it was a retail product, but again, it only has $20 worth of parts. The real price will be when they add up all the costs and then choose an appropriate profit margin based on their intended goal. I believe they can manage to build it for less than $300.

    ​It really depends on how quickly Microsoft plans to push this to market and how far they are in the product development cycle. I honestly do believe that Microsoft's aiming to offer a consumer grade HoloLens in 12-24 months. For one thing, this is still an ill-defined market, the floor is wide open and Microsoft has the opportunity to define and own it, and in turn, have developers orbit around the HoloLens. Focusing on the enterprise landscape is good, but I don't think it will compensate for not winning over developers focused on consumer applications and solutions.

    I think Microsoft will aim for a $499 price-point, $599 tops. I'm not worried about the Cherry Trail CPU, RAM or even display technology driving up costs, the main concern is whatever the HPU is and the Kinect/camera and sensor technology. But at this stage, honestly, I think Microsoft has a lot of that down flat. They've been working on this for a few years now and I can't imagine them showcasing this as a viable product if a consumer grade version weren't close.
