Canadian Surface prices set to drop to match US rates

If you live in Canada and are planning to buy a Surface, you may have noticed that the prices of the Surface RT has been higher than that of the prices in the US despite the fact that the exchange rate has been near 1:1 for some time.

We have been tipped that new pricing is inbound for Canadian citizens who wish to purchase a Surface RT. The RT models will be dropping 20 Canadian dollars apiece and the Touch/Type covers will also be dropping $10 Canadian dollars and the Pro pricing should match that of the US as well.

While not a huge drop in price, this should appease those who live in the great north as the prices will be more closely aligned to their US counterparts. We don’t have exact details on when the new pricing will go in into effect; it’s likely that this may occur when the Pro goes on sale this weekend but we are told it will be happening very soon.

Keep your eyes open if you are planning on buying a Surface because you may be able to save a little bit of scratch on your next purchase.

Thanks for the tip anon!

No, they shouldn't... does every store that has a price reduction give refunds to their customers? No. Some places do have price guarantees where if the price gets reduced within a certain amount of days, you can get a refund; but most stores don't have this. It would be nice if they did, but they don't have to.

Should have been like that from the beginning but still nice to see. Now if only apple could follow suit

Are dollar isn't worth more than the American dollar right now? Usually is.
But then again, everything seems to be so much cheaper over the border, lol.

Get over yourself. To what benefit does your grammatical correction add? Ah, that's right: none. Where as his post has context to the article, concludes an opinion and states a potential fact.

As far as I can tell the only thing worth a 'sigh' in here is your reply. Maybe the reason you feel the need for your amusing avatar is because you over-analyse the negative aspects of all the things around you; be a bit more 'Open Minded'.

Your rant is pretty stupid. If you consider allowing grammar errors to be more 'open minded', you should consider yourself an idiot. People (especially online) are increasingly using the wrong spelling and grammar errors, so people need to be educated and learn to write correctly.

You misunderstand. I'm not opposing grammatical corrections, I'm opposing the way in which he did it. It was ironically 'sigh' worthy and to me necessitated a /rant.

Thank you. Ignorance is bliss and we shouldn't be forced to read poor grammar all the ****ing time. I wish people read more.
