Surface RT Prices Slashed in Australia and the UK

Hot on the heels of a major price-cut in the US, which saw Surface RT starting at US $349.99, Microsoft announced similar cuts in other certain other markets. In the UK, Surface RT is expected to start at £279 for the 32 GB variant (down from £399), and the 64 GB variant at £359, down from a brutal £479. The Touch Cover bundle adds £80 to each of those prices. Down Under, it's the same dance; and although we don't have solid numbers for the prices, it's reported that up to AU $180 have been slashed off original pricing.
