Microsoft slashes Surface RT pricing in the UK to £279 and $349 in the US

Microsoft has slashed its Surface RT pricing in the UK. Through official channels, the Windows RT tablet (32GB model) can now be picked up for just £279, a massive drop from the usual £399. If you're into more storage, the 64GB version is available for £359. This is the base price point so if you're wanting a keyboard and other accessories, you'll be further adding the cost up.

We've previously reviewed Microsoft's Windows 8 tablet, which is well worth checking out. It's good to see the price drop for the tablet, making it a more affordable option for consumers. Note that this is the RT version and not an installation of Windows 8.
