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.

Chevrolet outsells Toyota - and just about every other brand on the market - but they build some of the most unreliable cars on the road. The fact that Android outsells Apple only proves that they outsell Apple. It proves nothing else.

I'm no fan of Apple as a company, but the iPad is the best tablet on the market, and I've tried them all. And virtually every review I've ever read says the same thing.

Good points, except Toyota outsells Chevy.

I think GM sells the most cars in the U. S., and Toyota sells the most worldwide. Anyway, my point is the same.

Because you selectively read the reviews. You can read the reviews the other way and you can sell many reviewers think Surface Pro is the future.

The only fact that is true is iPad does sells in several millions and making Apple lots of profits. Does not mean the whole world (ie 100% population in the world) think iPad is the best tablet. Market share alone iPad has only 34% market share and that shows 66% people who have bought tablets in 2013 did not agree with that opinion.
