    Saw this yesterday. If I was in the market for one or even as a gift, I would jump on this.

    Yeah probably a good buy assuming MS is likely going to be improving RT.

    The supply and demand model describes how prices vary as a result of a balance between product availability at each price (supply) and the desires of those with purchasing power at each price (demand). The graph depicts a right-shift in demand from D1 to D2 along with the consequent increase in price and quantity required to reach a new market-clearing equilibrium point on the supply curve (S).

    Yes! I was planning hold out for the new cheaper 7-8" RT for my son's birthday. I wasn't willing to spend ~$600 for a Surface. Thanks to Dell, he's getting a full-sized tablet a little sooner. Family Safety makes this a no-brainer choice over an iPad or Android device. When he logs in, the new device will inherit all the restrictions I have setup on the desktops.

    This is why my 12 year old also has a Lumia 920 (he bought it), Family Safety is enforced there as well, Desktop, RT Tablet and Phone....I assume the new Xbox will be supported as well...

    Wow, I didn't know Family Safety worked on the phone as well. We haven't crossed the kids-having-cell-phones line yet despite our kids being convinced they are the only kids at school without one. If or when we do go down that road, WP will be the obvious choice. I cant believe MS doesn't market Family Safety. That's a HUGE reason to go all-Microsoft with desktop, laptop, tablet, and phone for personal devices.
