Microsoft wants to move existing stock of original Surface Pro tablet

Microsoft is trying hard to get consumers to purchase its Surface Pro tablet. Back in August, Microsoft reduced the price for its Surface Pro tablet by $100 making the 128 GB Surface Pro available for $899 and the 64 GB version available for $799. Microsoft is now announced that it's taking an additional $100 off the price of these tablets.

The Surface Pro 128 GB tablet will be available for $799. The 64 GB Surface Pro will sell for $699 with the 256 GB version available for $999. These discounts are specifically for the original Surface Pro, not the recently announced Surface Pro 2 tablets.


The deal is valid from October 22 through December 31 of 2013, or while supplies last.
 
This is clearly a moved to get rid of all the stock of Surface Pro tablets left laying around and may help spur sales during the holiday shopping season.

For comparison the Surface 2, which is the new version of the Surface RT, sells for $449 with 32 GB of storage. The Surface Pro 2 is available starting at $899.

Windows 8 is very stable and last I checked wasn't it iOS that needed a security patch every few weeks? As for reboots this uses full blown Windows 8 and I have not had to reboot my Windows 8 unless I installed a complicated desktop program, no app needed me to reboot. As for using them I would go with the one that allows me to use all tablet apps in their store AND every Windows program every made as well, it is way more useful than a tablet and mobile OS. This isn't Windows RT we are talking about here the Pro uses a full feature OS.
