Surface Pro Price Cuts Permanent

The recent price cuts for the Surface devices have been made permanent. Prices are dropping, but are they worth it even at the lower price? My iPad is limited, similar to the Surface RT. It won’t run full desktop applications (for the most part). The Windows Store has a much more limited selection of usable applications than the Apple Store, as well. For many, they want the full PC functionality in a tablet form – the Surface Pro. That is what I am looking for right now. The price is getting better, and it’s an excellent product. I am waiting to hear about the Surface 2 before I make a decision (close out prices on Surface Pro as well as comparing specs and battery life).

What are these adjustments?

  • $100 (U.S.) off Surface Pro (including the 256 GB SKU). This means the entry-level Surface Pro will now start at $799 (U.S.)
  • $40 (U.S.) off Touch Covers. Touch Covers will now start at $79 (U.S.), and Limited Edition Touch Covers will now start at $89 (U.S.)
  • $50 (U.S.) off Surface RT bundles. Surface RT bundles will now start at $399 (U.S.)
