Rather than apply a permanent price cut to its Surface Pro 3 range, Microsoft has instead fallen into a strange habit of offering discounts of up to $150 off its tablets every few weeks. And now, it's that time once again, as the company has served up another round of chunky price cuts on several models in its range.
The Microsoft Store is now offering $150 off four Surface Pro 3 models - all of those that include 8GB of RAM:
- Intel Core i5 / 256GB | usually $1299 | now $1149
- Intel Core i7 / 128GB | usually $1299 | now $1149
- Intel Core i7 / 256GB | usually $1549 | now $1399
- Intel Core i7 / 512GB | usually $1949 | now $1799
These models will remain available with $150 off until August 1. The prices of the other two models in the Surface Pro 3 range (Intel Core i3 / 64GB / 4GB RAM - $799; and Intel Core i5 / 128GB / 4GB RAM - $999) are unchanged.
The US isn't the only market to be enjoying some significant discounts on Microsoft's tablets. Over in the UK, both the Surface Pro 3 and the more affordable Surface 3 are on sale with 10% off their regular prices, with further money-saving opportunities available through special bundles that include official Type Cover keyboards and Docking Stations.
