Original Microsoft Surface Pro has its price cut a further $100, down to $699
Back in August, Microsoft decided to slash $100 off of the price of the first-generation Surface Pro tablet. That made this device’s pricing barely more palatable, but today there’s some even better news if for some reason you may be interested in grabbing one.
As the Surface Pro 2 has been available for a couple of days now, Microsoft probably needs to clear out its remaining stock of the older version of the tablet. And what better way to do that than with another, further price cut? Exactly.
So, if you’re in the US or Canada, you can head on over to your local online Microsoft Store and purchase a 64 GB Surface pro for just $699, and the 128 GB model for $799. Those prices are both $200 lower than what the tablet was initially going for, so some may call this a great deal.
However, the new Surface Pro 2 is better than its predecessor in almost all respects, so while it is more expensive it’s probably worth it – that is, if you’re already in the market for a tablet powered by ‘proper’ Windows and not the RT version of the operating system.
Otherwise, if you just want a tablet, any tablet – iPads and Android-powered Nexus devices await (for a lot less cash).
