A lot of the hold outs or maybe buyers
Are definitely interested in Office on a tablet and will likely pay a slightly higher price (~$100) to get a tablet with Office support baked in. The Office 2013 implementation isn't perfect but it is more usable than previous versions in a touch system. I do however like the path they're taking with the MX software. OneNoteMX is awesome on a tablet and I'd rather purchase and use a lightweight suite of official mobile Office apps than try to shoehorn the full desktop suite of Office on to a tablet. I think the current scheme of Windows RT + Office 2013 is a hold over until they can create Metro versions of the common apps and sell them via the Store.
