Microsoft stands to make $30.85 more per Surface RT tablet with keyboard than Apple does with a similar 32G iPad without a keyboard, according to iSuppli teardown analyses.
A Microsoft Surface RT tablet with a Touch keyboard costs $284 to manufacture; it sells for $599, iSuppli says. Without the keyboard it retails for $499. The keyboard itself costs $16 6o $18 to manufacture.
