What is Free 1Yr Skype & 200GB SkyDrive Worth? Around $380!
I am located in AUS so I might receive slightly different prices (can't tell if it is in US dollars) but a 200GB (really 207GB as 7GB is free) Subscription for SkyDrive is worth $105 per year so, $210 for the free two year plan you receive for purchasing a new Surface 2 or Surface Pro 2 product.

Skype International calling is complicated to calculate because the new products come with a free subscription to landlines but the current "Unlimited Subscription" includes some mobile but mostly landline calls. This is priced in US dollars at $13.99 per month = $167.88 Source: Skype Rates (To see pricing type any country and view plans)
So in total the new surface comes with an added value of approximately $380 with Skype and SkyDrive!
Is this a huge selling point for anyone? Plus, would do you use Skype to call landlines frequently currently?
