Microsoft Surface 2 discounted by $100

Microsoft Surface 2

Looking to purchase a tablet for the new school year? Having you had your eye on the Microsoft Surface 2 with access to the Office suite and OneDrive ? Well you are in luck as the tablet has been discounted on the Microsoft Store

The 32GB model can now be yours for only $349, while the 64GB model costs just $449. If you want 4G LTE connectivity, Microsoft has you covered for $579. Keep in mind that the LTE model is linked to the AT&T network and comes with 64GB of storage. There is no information on when the discount will expire.


The Microsoft Surface 2 features a 10.6 inch LCD display with a 1920 by 1080 pixel resolution, up to 64GB of internal storage with the option of expansion through microSD, a 5 megapixel rear camera, a 3.5 megapixel front camera and a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor with 2GB of RAM.

It is important to note that this is a Windows RT device. So you wont be able to run the usual native Windows apps you run on your desktop or laptop. The desktop mode is basically only used for managing your files and running Office.

Does the $100 discount warrant purchasing one of Microsoft's tablets instead of an iPad or an Android tablet? Well if you are looking for a device solely for productivity, you could consider the Surface 2. However the Surface Pro or another full Windows running tablet may be much better suited. We would have preferred to see Microsoft offer a better discount on this device, given that it is not really a popular tablet option these days.
