Surface RT Price Drops 30%, Microsoft Takes $900 Million loss

Microsoft Surface RT

Episode 998

With stores dropping prices of the Microsoft Surface RT $150 (or 30% off), Microsoft announced a $900 million loss this quarter. This is likely because Windows RT isn't a real copy of Windows. It doesn't run programs for Windows Phone or Windows 8, it's it's own separate operating system. Leo doesn't advise buying the Surface RT tablet at this point because he suspects it won't be around for long.
