Microsoft has knocked $130 off the price of its Surface 2 Windows RT tablets in Australia — making them cheaper than even the lowliest large iPad models. The price reduction means the base 32GB model now costs $399, and the 64GB unit costs $509.
The reductions — running until September 27 — are available through Microsoft’s physical and online stores, and some other retailers, including Amazon. Those less concerned by price cuts and more enamoured with the rumour mill might see this as a suggestion that there’s going to be a discontinuation or replacement of the Surface 2. Let’s see!
