Pricing on the upcoming Surface tablets from Microsoft has eluded many, until now. Microsoft CEO, Steve Ballmer, talked with The Seattle Times regarding the Surface, saying that the starting price will "probably $300 to about $700 or $800." adding, "that's the sweet spot."

In the $300 (or so) range, we're probably going to see the Surface RT, which is the consumer-based version running Windows RT. The upper-end of the pricing structure will probably mold around the Surface Pro, which runs the full-blown Windows 8 OS.

 

Microsoft have already said Windows 8-based tablets will be aimed at replacing cheaper notebooks, but the entire line should compete with the likes of Apple's iPad, and most Android-based tablets.
