Microsoft slices another $100 off the original Surface Pro tablet

October 24 2013

It looks like Microsoft is trying to get rid of the original Surface Pro tablets . The company has now reduced the Windows 8 tablet’s price by another $100.

The discount, which only seems to apply to buyers living in the U.S. or Canada, sees the first-generation model fall to $699 and is due to expire on December 31. The Surface Pro price was previously cut by $100 in August.

Microsoft is almost certainly doing this to sell off remaining inventory and could well stop selling the first-generation device altogether from 2014, as it is no longer listed on the firm's main Surface website.

The company announced the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 in New York last month and the former is now available starting at $899.
