Microsoft has cut $100 off the price of its Surface 2 Windows RT tablets. This puts the cheapest 32GB unit at $349, the 64GB unit at $449, and the 64GB model with LTE version at $579. With the price cut, the 32GB 1920×1080 Microsoft tablet is priced below all but the 16GB non-Retina iPad mini.
The discounts are available through Microsoft’s physical and online stores, as well as through some other retailers such as Amazon. The price cuts are described as being for a limited time only, expiring on September 27 or “while stocks last.” Microsoft is also limiting buyers, rather optimistically, to a maximum of five discounted units per purchase.
My guess is that they’ll release a Surface 3 that will run the same Windows 9 that all the rest of the Microsoft platforms eventually will.
