Get a Surface 2 for Just $299 This Black Friday and Save $150
If you don’t mind getting a Windows 8.1 RT-powered tablet, then you will be interested in this Black Friday deal for the Surface 2. Apparently, there’s no Surface 3 on the cards, so now is your chance to get a Surface 2 for a cheaper price.
An early preview Black Friday deal at BestBuy reveals that that the Surface 2 will be available for just $299 for the 32 GB version. This represents a savings of $150 from its list price. The future of Windows RT is quite uncertain, but if we consider that the Windows Store will possibly get Microsoft Office touch-enabled apps for free, then this is an interesting proposal.
The Surface 2 was unveiled in September, 2013 and doesn’t bear the ‘RT’ moniker anymore in its official naming, which was a clear hint that Microsoft already knew at the time that Windows RT was failing.
The tablet uses Nvidia Tegra 4 as it system-on-chip and has a 1.7 GHz Cortex A15 quad core CPU. There’s 2GB of RAM and from the 32 GB of storage, 18 GB is available. By using a microSD card reader, you can extend this up to 64GB.
The display is 10.6 inches with a 1920×1080 resolution, a ClearType HD screen with 16:9 aspect ratio. It comes with GeForce graphics, Sound Dolby Digital Plus stereo speakers, dual microphones for noise cancellation, 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope, compass, ambient light sensor, GPS (with cellular model)
There’s a 3.5 MP, 1080p HD front camera and a 5 MP, 1080p HD rear one. Connectivity-wise, it comes with 2×2 MIMO Wi-Fi (802.11 a/b/g/n), Bluetooth 4.0, full-size USB 3.0, HD Video Out (micro HDMI), 4G LTE (with cellular model). The dimensions of the device are 10.81 inchesx6.81 inchesx0.35 inches and it weighs 1.49 pounds.
