      Many people wonder why the Surface tablets are so much cheaper in the US than in other countries. In western European countries, for example, you pay an extra $200 on the average.
      The answer to this is quite simple: customs and taxes.
      If you try to ship a Surface to someone in Europe, you’ll quickly figure out that every country charges its own taxes and customs charges and it adds up to about an extra $200.
      Microsoft is a US based company, and hence they have to pay those too.
