Microsoft Cuts Surface Pro Tablet Pricing, Following Slashing of Surface RT
It could just be temporary, but a company usually doesn't initiate a price drop unless sales are lagging or a new model is en route (or both). Microsoft is learning just how difficult it is to compete with Apple in the tablet market that the iPad presently owns, and it also speaks to something greater. Microsoft seemingly assumed that Windows 8, a full-fledged operating system, on a tablet was the best of both worlds. Turns out, people aren't flocking to the Surface Pro, and on the whole, aren't buying that value proposition.
The current sale price will last until at least the end of the month, but it remains to be seen how Microsoft will address the overriding issue of disinterest in future editions of Surface.
