Asus gives in to Microsoft's Surface, too, VivoTab RT goes to $550 with the keyboard dock

There are a few hoops to jump through to get to that $549.99 price plus dock, like signing up for the ASUS Membership program, as well as uploading a picture of the serial number and the purchase label. In the end you get a 32 GB VivoTab RT with a $200 value keyboard dock that doubles the battery life, for $550.
play out after all. It didn't subsidize the RT tablet as manufacturers were fearing, but yet the slate is shaping up to be the main consumer choice in the Win RT world, and other makers are gradually throwing in the towel.These moves prove that Microsoft's Surface strategy might
And very soon Surface will be KO by Nexus 10, the best 10" tablet in the market.

You obviously don't know anything about consumerism but everything about fanboyism... Consumers like having choices. TechGeeks would definitely get both. And fanboys like you will stay with what you know and have.

If manufacturers "throw in the towel" this reduces choices - not good for us the consumer. May also not be good for ms. Fewer choices may make it harder for win rt to get enough market share. I like that ms is making a tablet, but i dont luke the fact it is causing other great brands to not bother trying to compete :(
