The Microsoft Surface Pro 2 debuted earlier this week, so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that the original version has just seen its price cut.
The new model is going to replace the original, so Microsoft needs to clear its shelves of all inventory of last year’s model. That’s why the Surface Pro’s price has been dropped $100. This follows an initial $100 price cut this summer.
That means the 64GB version of this Windows 8.1 device is now going for $700, while the 128GB one is $800.
For these prices, the computers don’t come with keyboards — these are sold separately, starting at $80. A stylus is included, however.
For comparison, the 64GB version of the Surface Pro 2 is $900 and the 128GB one is $1000. But they might be worth the extra money, as these tablets have Intel’s new “Haswell” processors, so they offer better performance and a longer battery life.
