Microsoft Slashes Surface RT Prices for Schools
Apple Insider has the full story. But it's mostly a whole lot of nothing. For starters, $199 is a sucker price, because the Surface just isn't usable without a keyboard and a trackpad. It's unique in being the only touch tablet without a fully touch-friendly operating system.
Oh, and there aren't any apps for it, either. And the screen sucks compared to iPad and even many Android devices.
The problem with RT isn't the price; it's all the other stuff I just mentioned.
