from the original quote above- There has not been any indication at all that MS was considering some low ball $199 for the Surface RT and certainly not for the Surface Pro. They clearly indicated that pricing would be consistent with other offerings with comparable specs. So the RT/Arm Surface would be in the $400-$500 starting price range as for similarly sized and spec'd Android tablets and iPads.
The Surface Pro they said would be priced similarly to Ultrabooks. I've seen some starting in the $600s so that means more than likely $600-$800 starting range depending on internal memory and wireless capability.
They wont be building a barebones 7" Surface (at least at launch)
