Microsoft’s Surface Pro is now the same price as Apple’s iPad

Surface Pro Price Cut

Microsoft’s Surface Pro is easily one of the most exciting and unique Windows computers that has ever been created, but unfortunately the device’s sleek design and novel keyboard accessories haven’t translated into big sales. Microsoft took a charge of nearly $1 billion last fiscal year related to unsold Surface RT and Surface Pro inventory, and it dropped each device’s price as well. Now, Microsoft has slashed the Surface Pro’s price again by another $100 as it looks to attract buyers and clear inventory following the Surface Pro 2’s recent debut. Microsoft’s Pro tablet now starts at $699 with 64GB of storage and the 128GB model is available for $799. Interestingly, those prices now align perfectly with Apple’s 64GB and 128GB iPad tablets. The two Surface Pro models were originally priced at $899 and $999 respectively when they first debuted.
