Microsoft have the pre-order page up for the Surface RT tablets. It was there and now it’s not, the order page was up but its been pulled. There has been a lot of speculation on the what the price would be and it looks like the Surface RT pricing is close with the iPad pricing.

UPDATE: UK price is £399 and the order page is up now

The cheapest Surface comes in at $499 for the 32GB model without a Touch Cover, it’s $599 for the 32GB model with Touch Cover and $699 for the 64GB version with Touch Cover. Compare that with the iPad, the 16GB is $499 and the 32GB version is priced at $599 without a cover.

The Surface type keyboard is priced at $129.

No UK price yet but if the 16GB iPad costs £399 in the UK then I expect the 32GB Surface RT will be around the same price. I was hoping that Microsoft would be more aggressive with the pricing. Will you be ordering one?

  1. I’d buy one as long as they don’t gouge UK consumers on the price. £450 would be fair for the 32GB with cover based on current exchange rate + VAT.
