@davejunia Hi Dave, the academic pricing news from the MS site http://bit.ly/1aHjvCP is meant for NUS corporate departmental purchases only

Dear early adopters (early for those who bought the local version that is), Microsoft Singapore has lowered the price of the Surface Tablets by $180. The Surface RT 32GB is $488, the Surface RT 64GB is $618, the Surface RT 32GB Bundle with Touch Cover is $618 and the Surface RT 64GB Bundle with Touch Cover is now $748. I must say... the price is mighty appealing. SL

as much as i am happy that they lowered the price to open up to a bigger market, i must say i am not happy to be the early adopter for this hardware.. haiz... left a bad taste in my mouth..

But all Tech Gadgets gets cheaper over time & especially just before the next generation is launched.

If considering you're able to get the Surface at student's pricing, comparing Nexus 7/10 and Surface, which would you all recommend?

That is comparing between the pricing which is near the same.

The surface has office installed which is a plus. Nexus has more apps from google play.

My choice is nexus as the concern is what direction Microsoft might take should the price cuts fail to improve sales.

After spending one day with the Surface RT, I fell in love with it. The only downside to it is the selection of apps which I hope will improve overtime. For work use, go for Surface. If you want an all in one entertainment tablet, I think iPad/android is the way to go.
