    Surface Win RT $499 model Sold Out Again Online At Best Buy

    This is the 3rd time since Microsoft launched the Surface Pro - $899 without Office. But hey you can rent office for only $99/year.

    I guess people like paying $499 and getting Office included.

    Can't wait for Microsoft to release a Surface with Tegra 4. These Intel chip prices are so way over the top and with Geekbench2 benchmarks equal to an Intel mobile I5 part#3317u why pay $400 more and you don't even get Office for free. Tegra 4 - 4592, Intel I5 #3317u - 4679 in those Geekbench2 benchmarks

    As Jensen says "Win RT Rocks on Tegra 4".

    Was that a hint of what's coming?

    • You are deluding and fooling yourself if you believe Nvidia's deceptive marketing again. Just as Tegra 3 was in no way a match for a Core 2 Duo it claimed to beat, Tegra 4 will not be a match for any i5-3317U as this is the processor at the heart of the Surface Pro and have you seen the gulf between it and all the ARM tablets ?


      The i5-3317 is a 1.7 GHz part with 2.6 GHz turbo and Tegra 4 will not keep up with it at even its base clockspeed never mind its turbo. It also has Geekbench scores as high as 7242


    • In the case of Surface RT, pricing is not the only "make or break" factor.. Most people who want a Surface RT are going for its Office Suite, and most consumers who want the Office Suite would like it compliant with Windows legacy apps - this is not NVIDIA's fault, nor Microsoft's, and it just takes time to bridge the gap and time is in RT's favor. MS's got to start the first step and it has.

      With Tegra 4 showing such raw power, I wouldn't be surprised if MS and NV are already busy working on Surface II. We shouldn't expect any announcements until close to the product release, however, as smart observers would notice that this is way the game is being played nowadays.

    • Win RT has only achieved half of the expected sales....
      The good news is this is the first iteration of RT... so it can only get better...

      • It will when Microsoft slips in a Tegra 4 with equivalent benchmarks to Intel's mobile I5 processor. Only a matter of a few more months at the most. Plus they released Surface RT in all the European Countries in late Feb. and India and some Asian countries are close to release dates. Intel Pro is still US and Canada only........

        But what was expected and does it really matter...that's the bear trap that people love to play. Thankfully Nvidia is ruled by the "law of Small Numbers" not like Apple and Intel where the :law of Large Numbers Rule"
