So here’s the good news.
The Microsoft Surface is now available for purchase at your local Best Buy.
There is bad news though.
First of all, no one seemed to care at all. The Microsoft section of the store still seems to be a lonely patch in an otherwise busy store.
It seems that in comparison to the Apple part of the store, the Windows 8 areas are still a little slow.
I spoke to a rep at the store and he said that all the PC’s (except one) had Windows 8 pre-installed. When I asked him how they were selling, he got real nervous and wouldn’t make eye contact.
He said it wasn’t too bad but from his body language…
Next, in this store, the unit wasn’t even charged so I couldn’t play with it or even turn it on.
That’s nice, a dead display unit with a type cover.
That should really move some units.
