Microsoft cuts the price of Surface 2

Written by Nick Farrell

At least for a short time

Microsoft is cutting the price on its Surface 2 just a month after cuts to the prices of its Surface Pro 2.

The Surface 2 runs the much-mocked Windows 8 RT operating system and Redmond is lopping $100 off the price.

This means that a 32GB Surface 2 will set you back $349 and the 64GB version will cost $449. If you want the 64GB version with 4G LTE connectivity will have to pay $579. The discounts will be available at Microsoft’s shops and online.

However you will have to be in quick if you really want one. Redmond said that the price stands until September 27. Optimistically it has warned that customers are limited to a total of 5 discounted Surface tablets per purchase.

Word on the street is that the price cut could be because Microsoft is planning to discontinue the model and wants to get rid of its overstock. It could also mean that Microsoft is preparing to unveil a successor to the Surface 2.

The Surface 2 that’s being discounted was introduced last October. The only change to this device has been the addition of a 4G LTE version.

Another suggestion is that Microsoft is getting excited about the HP Stream 14, which is a $99 laptop which might be an inexpensive answer to Chromebook while running a full version of Windows 8.1. It might be that Microsoft just does not see a need for anything like a surface 2 any more.
