The Surface Pro 2 Gets Discontinuted by Microsoft
The Surface Pro 3 is currently Microsoft’s best product and it seems that it will be the focus of the company, as most likely there won’t be a new Surface RT slate. And it seems that the Surface Pro 2 is no longer being sold by the company.
Albeit Microsoft hasn’t announced this officially, the Surface Pro 2 has quietly disappeared from the Microsoft online store and most likely the stock is being depleted at physical retail locations, as well.
On the Surface.com website, the Pro 2 content is still appearing, but the ‘buy’ link doesn’t lead to anywhere, which means Microsoft has taken the product from sales. However, this is a great moment to hunt for deals, as the device will be in limited quantities, most likely. But you should be searching with Microsoft’s partners instead of the company itself.
The Surface Pro 2 had a starting price of $799, but let’s hope that you manage to hunt down a better price than that. As a reminder, here are the main tech specs of the device:
- 1.9 GHz (2.9 GHz Turbo-boost) fourth generation Intel Core i5-4300U processor
- 64, 128, 256, or 512 GB of internal storag; 64 and 128 GB models includes 4 GB of RAM
- Windows 8.1
- 10.6-inch 10-point 1080p multi-touch digitizer LCD display with a Wacom stylus pen.
So, would you still be interested in getting it or you’re going to leave your money on the table for the Surface Pro 3?
