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.

My 2 years old daughter use my Surface pro daily, can even log out of my account to jump into hers, and she can switch between her 1000 games with no problem. The pen is precise enough for her painting.

So what's your problem with the tablet exactly?

He may have gotten one of the faulty Wacom digitizers with poor edge calibration. This is the frst I have heard of it on the Surface, but it isn't inconceivable as it is an occasional issue on Wacom Bamboo pen input devices. Chances are the Surface is using the ower end digitizer similar to the one in the Bamboo, and not the digitizer found in more expensive Intuos or Cintiq.
