We may have panned the Surface RT as much as we did when we reviewed it, but the story about Microsoft’s original Surface Pro is very different, up to the point where today’s news are quite enticing for those of you in the market for a very powerful tablet-computer. The Surface Pro topped our list of best tablets for last year, and we can assure you that our own Adam Lein still loves it enough to keep it for an extra year because of its snappy performance.
As it turns out Microsoft has decided to keep selling it until December 31st (or until supplies last) and for $100 less. That means you can get a 64GB Surface Pro for $699, and the 128GB model (which we highly recommend) for $799. Obviously for two extra Benjamins you can get the new model, which is dramatically better in important things like battery life and all, but unless you’re planning on spending a lot of time on the road, this original Surface Pro will suffice the needs of many, and you can keep those $200 for accessories.
I wouldn’t think this too long if I were you. We sadly don’t know how much overstock Microsoft has of the Pro, so make sure you read our full review about it if you need further help deciding.
