Microsoft’s new Surface tablets may already be in short supply

October 4, 2013

Both tablets go on sale starting October 22. The Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 "are close to selling out," Microsoft's developers account tweeted earlier today.

But it's not clear how many Surface tablets were actually pre-ordered and whether in fact there could be a supply issue come the official release date.

An under-supply would be ironic in light of Microsoft having to earlier take a $900 million write-off for unsold Surface RT tablets, a model being replaced by the Surface 2 running the new Windows 8.1 operating system.

eBay could be the best place to sell a used Surface tablet

September 30, 2013

Ironically, Microsoft has been promoting a trade-in program that offers cash for used tablets, just not those made by Microsoft. 

eBay told Computerworld that the average selling price of a first-generation 32GB Surface RT tablet is currently $285, almost half the $499 many buyers paid when the Surface RT was released a year ago, but much closer to what Microsoft sells it for now ($349).

The 128GB Surface Pro tablet, which unlike RT tablets, runs the full-fledged version of Windows 8, sells for an average $741 on eBay. The Surface Pro currently has a list prices of $899, a hundred dollars less the original $999 price.
