Microsoft unveiled their second-generation tablets, Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2, last month. Previous models weren’t extremely popular among consumers and resulted in an enormous loss for Microsoft, also of course with truckloads of inventory to clear out.
It seems that the Surface Pro inventory still exists and to get rid of it, Microsoft has just slashed the price of the tablet by another $100, bringing the 64GB version down to $699. The 128GB version comes with a $799 price tag, while the Surface Pro with 256GB storage would goes for $999. Apparently, the deal is valid until December 31 or while the stock lasts. This might be the last try the Redmond giant may make to aid in clearing out unsold Surface Pro inventory. Apparently, the promotion is only valid for U.S. and Canada, so if you’re anywhere else, unfortunately you’re out of luck.
This price drops comes not too long after Microsoft reduced it by $100 in August as well. And, the $699 price could be the lowest we’ll see for the tablet.
The second-generation Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 goes for $499 and $899 respectively and can be purchased from a Microsoft Store and through selected retailers. However, the 64GB Surface 2 is showing a shipment date of October 29 while the 256GB and 512GB will be shipped by December 15th.
