Prices slashed by $100 on Microsoft Surface 2 models
If you're still looking for a tablet for the new school year, here is some great news. The Microsoft Surface 2 price has been cut online at the Microsoft Store. The 32GB model is now $349, and the 64GB variant is $449. If you want a 64GB version of the Surface 2 that offers 4G LTE connectivity, the price is $579, which also includes a $100 price cut. The LTE model is made to work over AT&T's network. Shipping from the Microsoft Store for any of the three versions, is on the house. There is no word when the discount will expire.

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?
