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.

Will Keep Mine

I will keep my Surface Pro till the battery dies or dies a sudden tragic death.
It's a fantastic device which enables me to do far more than any tablet with iOS or Android could. Reading is still better on iPad (with GoodReader) and Nexus 7 (and other 7-8" tablets) are the best to carry with you when outside. But the sheer power of the hardware and software of Surface puts it in a different class although I understand it's not for everyone. In fact, tablets in general are not for everyone and many, many people buy them because it is a trend or there is one very specific thing they do with it that can be done with other devices.
I have seen so many tablets (both Android and iOS) that hardly have anything installed on them except a few popular games and a couple of gimmicky photo apps or similar fart-app level apps.
