It’s Official, Microsoft Surface Now Available In Microsoft Stores

I wish I had the extra money for one of these, I would love to have one, but having three kids very much limits any extra spend money you might have floating around sadly. I guess I’ll get one eventually though, most likely when the next generation comes out and the originals drop in price. Oh well, if you’ve got the extra cash you can stop in a Microsoft Store and get your own Surface for $499 and don’t forget to pick up some accessories while you’re there. Official PR below for you:
