Microsoft Just Slashed $100 Off the Price of the Surface 2

Microsoft has knocked $100 off the price of its Surface 2 Windows RT tablets—making them cheaper than even the lowliest large iPad models.

The price reduction means the base 32GB model now costs $350, the 64GB unit $450, and the 64GB model with LTE $580. That new pricing means the 32GB Surface 2, with a 1920×1080 display, is now cheaper than a 16GB non-Retina iPad mini.

The reductions—running until September 27th— are available through Microsoft's physical and online stores, and some other retailers, including Amazon. Those less concerned by price cuts and more enamoured with the rumor mill might see this as a suggestion that there's going to be a discontinuation or replacement of the Surface 2. Let's see!
