Microsoft has been pushing their Surface RT and Surface Pro tablets pretty heavily in the media lately. While everyone's seen the commercials showing users dancing around and clicking their keyboards into place, the company has also been making more subtle inroads, including inking a deal with the NFL that provides sideline coaches with the latest in Surface technology.
Despite all of this advertising, how many people do you know that actually own a Surface tablet? Microsoft aims to increase those numbers by offering a deal that's almost too good to be true. Today, Channel 9 announced that all TechEd attendees will have the option to purchase both a 64GB Surface RT with touch cover bundle for $99 and a 128GB Surface Pro for $399. This is an amazing deal for attendees, considering the fact that the touch cover alone costs more than $99. In addition, the tablet can be upgraded to the upcoming Windows 8.1 Preview when it's announced.
We're sure that most TechEd attendees will be lining up at the show to put their money down for one or both of these tablets next week.
