I have no idea what price levels will be but NPD predicts very aggressive pricing activity as pc makers vie to capture more market share. Average pc prices have been at their lowest in years and look to go even lower mainly because entry-level pcs are close to be being given away thanks to Microsoft subsidies to OEMs. All of this will lead to downward pressure on prices leading up to this year’s holiday sales season.
Ironically, while lower prices help to get more Windows devices into the hands of consumers, this ultimately degrades pc business and makes fertile ground for Apple to keep increasing its market growth.
There's another thread with a link to the Microsoft Store Black Friday deals. Currently there's not a deal on the SP3 but it says to check back for more surprises. Then again wouldn't that be Cyber Monday thing with the Online Store?
