What else would they say ?


I dunno, something along the lines of, "We're introducing a new line of Surface products at more affordable prices, targeting a different market"...? But then, they'd start competing with the OEMs, who would then immediately start complaining loudly.

An interesting hypothesis that discounts the possibility of greed.


There's only so far greed could get them. They don't have the brand name people are blindly willing to spend money on, unlike That Fruit Company. If it sells, even when it commands a premium price, it's because they have the product that justifies it. And it does sell--MS has consistently been reporting in their last few quarterly financial reports that the Surface line is making them money.

You wanna compare it with cheap crap? I have an HP Stream 7--which is exactly how not to do a Windows tablet. It sold for cheap, and a premium price would be completely unjustified. They would've sold 3, and then world would've been warned to stay away from them.
