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.

Some Wacom digitizers have edge calibration problems. The closer you get to the edge, the less accurate. Trying to calibrate to get the edges accurate throws the rest of the screen off. The best bet is to calibrate so as to make the middle spot-on. Theis makes most of the screen accurate and just leaves the edges off. Much better than trying to fix the edges and messing up the rest of the screen.

That's exactly the problem I had, and on a $100 toy, I would have accepted it, but on a device that cost over $700 at the time, it was a deal breaker. For that kind of money, I expect things to work correctly.
