Surface Pro now only $899
Just weeks ago Microsoft announced that their Surface RT tablet would be receiving a price cut. The once $499 tablet is now available for $349, but that did’t seem to spark much interest in the tablet community since the iPad mini is still available at a lesser cost. The Surface RT tablet also suffers on the performance side of the table also as reviewers have mentioned that simple tasks such as web browsing simply didn’t have a fluid feel to it.
So people wanted to know, when will the Surface Pro prices be cut? The Surface Pro is significantly more powerful, and a more enjoyable experience overall, but at it’s entry level price of $999, many would argue you spend that money on an Ultrabook, or maybe even one of those Macbook Air things some people might have heard of?
Well the Surface Pro is finally receiving a price cut of $100, but is that enough? The tablet is still in the Ultrabook price range, and since tablets mainly revolve around the use of apps and reading, neither this ecosystem nor form factor is doing the Surface Pro any favors.
What are your thoughts? Will you be picking up a Surface Pro? Or will you fight it out, and wait to see if Microsoft does a complete fire sale to clear out inventory of these things?
