Prices slashed by $100 on Microsoft Surface 2 models
For those who don't remember the specs on the Surface 2, let's see if we can jostle your memory. The tablet features a 10.6 inch LCD screen, with resolution of 1920 x 1080. That works out to a pixel density of 208ppi. A quad-core 1.7GHz NVIDIA Tegra 4 is under the hood with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage inside. A microSD slot is available for those needing more memory. Back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 5MP and 3.5MP, respectively, but there is no flash on the slate. Windows RT 8.1 is pre-installed, out of the box.
We would imagine that Microsoft's warehouse is full of Surface 2 tablets, collecting dust. Will a $100 discount be enough to stimulate demand for the device, or will the suits in Redmond have to sharpen up their pricing ax a little more?

Poor Microsoft, not even a "mild" success with the Surface 2?
hahaha, or have you finally realized that there is absolutely NO demand for it?

"have you finally realized that there is absolutely NO demand for it?"
No kidding. We got a "free" Surface RT at work and for over a year, no one has used it other than to turn it on, try it for a few minutes, and turn it off. It just sits on the shelf. No one wants it. Not even any of the developers or testers.
The crux of the matter is that Windows brings nothing to mobile that anyone wants.
