Alternatively, Microsoft’s Surface tablet price cuts might be its response to the fact that it hasn’t been able to sell many of them.

  1. Thats a pretty deep discount! I still have a couple days to pick mine up 🙂

  2. That’s a nice savings but unfortunately it still makes the Surface pricey. It might have extra bells and whistles but an iPad even with keyboard is still half the price.

  3. I thought it was repriced for only $100. My bad

  4. I want to have my own laptop like that..Super nice!


    wow, that is nice
