Is Supply or Demand to Blame For Surface RT Being Sold Out on Launch Weekend?

Maximum PC: The Surface Pro officially hit the street this weekend, and it promptly sold out across the board.

Fans of the product are suggesting Microsoft simply can’t keep the tablet in stock, while its opponents are countering with accusations that the company is simply creating artificial scarcity.

Supply is always the reason. Same thing happened to the IP5
