Depending on where you live, finding a 128GB Surface Pro in stock can prove challenging. Best Buy only allows you to pick one up in-store, provided there are any available, and the 128GB SKU is sold out online at Microsoft's online store and at Staples. That's the bad news. And the good news? Well, if all you're interested in is the RT version anyway, we can help you save a few bucks.

Just head over to Staples' website, plop the Surface RT 32GB or 64GB into your virtual cart, and enter coupon code 99279. According to SlickDeals, the coupon code saves you $75, slashing the price of the 32GB model to $424 before tax and the 64GB model to $524 before tax, both with free shipping.

Surface RT

Bear in mind that Surface RT is powered by an ARM-based processor and therefore isn't capable of running legacy Windows applications. It's designed for home consumers looking for an alternative to the iPad, Galaxy Tab, and other tablets on the market, whereas Surface Pro is essentially a full-fledged notebook with a Core i5 foundation.

I'd be interested in a coupon that upgrades the thing to an x86 processor.

Mm, so close, but still a few bucks more than I want to pay for this thing. Get me the whole schmeer (i.e., with the type cover) for $499, and I'd be all over it.
