For those who have been looking out to get a Microsoft Surface 2, perhaps now is the best time to be able to do so. After all, how does a $100 price cut sound for the Microsoft Surface 2? This means the 32GB model will now cost you $349.99. Do bear in mind that this is the ARM variant of Windows, so do not think of it as gimped in some ways, since it does have a fair amount of capabilities, never mind the fact that it is unable to run legacy apps. You do get Office to go along with it, not to mention having access to the Windows Store that does offer several entertainment options.
First of all, a little bit of background on the Microsoft Surface 2 – it will come with a 10.6″ display that has 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, running on NVIDIA’s Tegra 4. The cheaper 32GB model will feature 2GB RAM, which will be accompanied by a microSD memory card slot, and considering how affordable fast microSD memory cards are these days, not to mention them arriving in large capacities, it is a no-brainer to actually pick up the 32GB model.
First launched in October last year, is a device that is close to a year old be worth checking out? $349, after all, would be considered to be a bargain, and who knows, Microsoft might actually be selling it at this price in order to clear out their inventory – for something new, perhaps?
