Microsoft Surface Pro 2 prices plummet in UK, with up to £150 discount

Exactly one week after Microsoft announced the Surface Pro 3, its Microsoft Store in the UK has announced huge price drops for the Surface Pro 2.

The Surface Pro 3 display is two inches larger than the Surface Pro 2, bringing a 12-inch screen to the Surface family. But the size isn't the only thing that was increased. With a newer, bigger, and brawnier Surface Pro tablet now available, most Windows consumers are likely uninterested in the Surface Pro 2. It's therefore safe to say Microsoft has some Surface Pro 2 units it needs to distribute. And that's probably why it is now marking down the year-old PC tablet.

"Microsoft Store UK has announced savings of up to £150 for the Surface Pro 2, available now", revealed Microsoft in a press release. "Surface Pro 2 is a true laptop replacement, capable of running virtually all your Windows software including the full Microsoft Office suite, as well as apps from the Windows Store. Surface Pro 2 offers the portability and simplicity of a tablet when you want it and the power and flexibility of a laptop when you need it."
