    I have seen the rumor that Windows RT would be $199, but not Windows 8 Pro. Every one that I have seen comment on it agrees Windows 8 Pro will be at least $300 more than Windows RT. And most comments on Windows RT being $199 run to something like Fat Chance.

    Yeah, I'd say pricing is up in the air at the moment and everyone and their dog doing reviews has an opinion on it.
    I can easily see W8 pro in the 2-3 hundred dollar range when all is said and done. This would be consistant with past pricing.

    I would hope that MS get closer to what Apple's pricing for their desktop OS would be.
    Windows RT is still a big question mark at this point, if your an owner of a W8 tablet why should you even need
    an install disk, except for maybe unusual & uncommon dual hardware device types that are barely on the market yet.
