Sale ends on Saturday

It hasn’t even been a full year since Microsoft launched its first generation Surface Pro for $900, a price tag that undoubtedly scared off more than a few buyers. When we tested the Surface Pro, we came to the conclusion that it has “more than enough power for any casual computing need,” though cheaper and lighter solutions made it a tough sell. If pricing is all that held you back, take note that Best Buy is currently selling the original Surface Pro for $500, which is $400 off its original retail price.

Finding first generation Surface devices selling for less than the original retail cost isn’t exactly a difficult task, but as far as sale prices go, this is the lowest we’ve seen the Surface Pro with 128GB go for. It’s $99 less than what Microsoft is asking, which is currently offering it for $599 with a $50 credit on

As a refresher, the Surface Pro sports a 10.6-inch display with a Full HD 1080p (1920×1080) resolution, Intel Core i5 3317U processor, 4GB of DDR3-1600 RAM, 128GB storage, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, front and rear-facing 720p cameras, and a few other items. It also comes with a stylus and integrated kickstand.

If you’re interested, bear in mind the sale price is only good today and tomorrow (Saturday).
