The Surface Pro joins the Surface RT in the sale section.
Microsoft has confirmed that the price of the Surface Pro will drop by $100 for the month of August. The news follows a similar price cut for the Surface RT, which was discounted back in mid-July and marked down to $349 for the 32 GB model. The 64 GB model was marked down to $449. Now, it's the Surface Pro's turn, though the discounts this time around are not as hefty as those imposed on the Surface RT.
The Verge reports receiving confirmation from Microsoft that the Surface Pro will be discounted by $100 starting August 4 and continuing through to August 29. Indeed, this offer is now reflected on Microsoft's own website, with the stipulation that those taking advantage of the offer won't be getting a cover included with their purchase. The offer is good for those living in the United States as well as residents in Canada, China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the UK or Australia are getting any love this time around, despite enjoying last month's Surface RT discounts.
The price cuts are in place just in time for the back-to-school shopping season, which is always good for discounts on notebooks. The 64 GB model has fallen from $899 to $799, while the 128 GB model has dropped to $899 from $999.
