Best Buy offers $400 off original Surface Pro

It wasn't necessarily the hardware that made the original Microsoft Surface Pro so unattractive to buyers; it was most likely the hefty price tag. If you have had a secret urge to get your hands on an original Surface Pro, this may the time.
Best Buy has announced a smoking deal on new 128GB Surface Pro tablets. The machine is up for sale at a $400 discount (from its current MSRP) making the tablet $499.99. That is half the price the tablet went for when it originally launched at $999.99.
The entry-level Surface Pro 2 tablet goes for $899.

The original Surface Pro has a 10.6-inch screen, integrated kickstand, supports pen input, and has built-in Wi-Fi. It also features Bluetooth and a memory card slot for storage expansion. The Surface Pro also offers front and rear cameras, but you don't get the slick keyboard accessory at this price.
It doesn't have the same sort of performance as the Surface Pro 2 offers with its updated Core i5 processor (or the 50% longer battery life), but the original tablet will get the job done at a much lower price for most people. 
The special deal at Best Buy makes a new Surface Pro 128GB tablet cheaper than some of the refurbished offerings available now. There is no indication of how long the new price will last.

Still too small

That is a great price and I thought about getting it for a couple of seconds. Then I remembered just how small 10.6" is on a laptop and I personally can't use it. The minimum size I have found that still works for me is 13".

So... Which 13" tablet do you currently use?

My split x2 has a 13.3" tablet mode that detaches from the keyboard. Great device and full blown specs.

Yeah. Last I checked it was $699 at best buy. Seems to be higher now.

I was trying to make the point that I still need a laptop for the screen size even though this has the full functionality of the Windows OS.

I'd be all over a 15" or 17" full windows tablet with zero bezel in a thin form. Make a USB 3 docking station for it too.
