Microsoft have been trying to emulate Apple for a while now, seems they're just carrying on that tradition.
Microsoft's UK store is offering a £77,777.77 version of its Surface 3 tabletoid. That's about US$121,966 or AU$158,520 for those beyond Blighty's sceptred shores.

To be pedantic, the number of the Beast is probably 616 - a mistranslation is responsible for all those god bothers getting het up about companies with three 6s in the telephone number/logo/ip etc etc etc
I've just ordered 32, when it got to the payment bit I felt safe that the total would be a little over my card limit.
It turns out that the total charge was £2.24 less 4% volume discount so they charged me £2.15 (with free express delivery) (7p each, I think I was overcharged :)
I've got a shipping number and they said they would arrive by Friday.
