  • I still hear lots of complaints from the Caribbean and South America

    I still don't see them on the list. Earlier this year my spouse hand-delivered one to a relative going to Med School in the Dominican Republic. It was our gift to him for doing so well and earning a scholarship. I guess Microsoft is still "learning the ropes" of being a hardware vendor in this market space.

    Maybe they will do better there and save the Surface business for Microsoft.

    The latest estimate is that the Surface venture has lost Microsoft about $1.73 billion since the Surface’s debut in 2012
