    I would have pre-ordered the Surface RT if it was less than $350. I thought it was more focused at students and thought it would be cheaper.

    Sorry Microsoft, I am not going to buy the Surface RT.

    I hope Nokia will come up with some better pricing with their rumoured tablets.

    It costs $100 less than the iPad. If you thought it would be much more cheaper than that, you were expecting crazy things.

    Ya, disappointed by the price

    going to wait for gen 2 or wait for the price drop for black friday to fight the ipad mini.

    btw, people saying it costs 100 dollars less then the ipad....there is a reason why every commercial is promoting the touch cover and the slogan "click-in" is being used....microsoft's marketing campaign is promoting the $599 bundle, not $499 one.

    Still, any decent iPad keyboard cover is at least $80, so it would still be $80 less than a comparable iPad bundle. Even a 32 GB iPad with the "Smart" cover would be $639, so for $40 less, you get a cover that does WAY more.

    I thought Surface RT was more focused at students. It is out of my reach now. I thought it would be $349.99.

    Oh well.... I will wait for a sale to buy the tablet or wait for a rumoured Nokia tablet.

    Even for students, $500-$600 is not a bad price for a computer. That is the price range most of the students at my University had, and it was a state school, and not even one of the premier state schools in my state.

    According to my knowledge, Windows RT does not support any other apps (software) which are not on the "Marketplace". Therefore, it cannot be compared to a fully functional laptop.

    That is just my opinion. Correct me if I am wrong.

    I am hugely disappointed in price, but I can justify it EXCEPT for the damn keyboards. That should have been included in the price.

    However, I get it... Microsoft probably threw a bone to OEM partners to not undercut them, and you can tell from the construction that it really is a premium product. I mean, really... skateboarding on it?! Wow. Impressive! Nevermind it has Office built-in to it, so that adds $100 right there.
