Until the end of this month, both versions of Microsoft’s Surface Pro will be $100 less than their usual prices, giving back-to-school shoppers an opportunity to save some money on this high-end Windows tablet.
The 64 GB vrsion is temporarily going for $800, while the 128 GB is $900. This deal is available in the U.S., Canada, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. There’s no word on whether there will be a similar price drop in other countries.
The Surface Pro is available now at the new prices from Microsoft’s website.
This price drop comes on the heels of Microsoft’s move to permanently drop the cost of the Surface RT to just $350.
More Details on the Microsoft Surface Pro
This computer has a 10.6-inch screen, with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. It includes a full-size USB 3.0 port, plus a Mini DisplayPort that can drive an external display up to 2560 x 1440 pixels.
This tablet is built around an Intel Core i5 processor with 4GB of RAM. Because it uses Windows 8 Pro, it is able to run software written for Windows 7 and earlier, in addition to apps written specifically for this new Microsoft operating system.
The device comes with a stylus dubbed “the Surface pen”, which has Palm Block technology. A Touch Cover or Type Cover is sold separately, at $120 and $130, respectively.
