2019: The year that Microsoft quits Surface hardware


Re: Isn't it obvious


Well "low margin" has nothing to do with "high price"

You can sell something for £20,000 and if it costs you £19,999 it's low margin. If it costs you £1,000 to make, it's high margin.

It's not clear to me what sort of margin on a unit sale of a typical surface there would be, but I imagine it is still loss making.
