Some Microsoft Surface Pro 3 models are now $150 cheaper in the US

Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 is not exactly the newest tablet on the market, but it remains one of the few slates that can actually replace your laptop. To give customers a new reason to buy a Surface Pro 3, Microsoft is now taking up to $150 off the price of the tablet.

While the Surface Pro 3 model that's powered by an Intel Core i3 processor isn't included in this deal, both the i5 and i7 models are. More exactly, the Surface Pro 3 with Intel i5, 128 GB of storage space and 4 GB of RAM now costs $899 (down from $999), while the model with Intel i5, 256 GB of storage space and 8 GB of RAM can be purchased for $1,149 (down from $1,299). Furthermore, the Intel i7 model with 256 GB of storage space and 8 GB of RAM can be had for $1,399 (was $1,549), while the same model but with 512 GB of storage space costs $1,799 (was $1,949). The offer is available until June 27, only at Microsoft Store and Best Buy in the US.

If the Surface Pro 3 is still too expensive for you, you can get the newer, smaller, and less powerful Microsoft Surface 3 for as low as $499.

I get the ultra-portable market and all but at the prices that Microsoft is asking I could get a full-fledged laptop with better specs or a convertible at a better price...Price is just too high....

I think that maybe manufacturers would get b*tchy if MS lowered the price of the SP, so MS keeps it high to please them and give a chance to the rest.

I have a surface pro 3 myself and I understand they are a little high in price. However I find that it is very well optimised as it is built by microsoft themselves, the build quality is very high, and I would peg it against any ultrabook out there. I cannot say for the american market but for the european market it is competitively priced compared to similar standard ultrabooks.

Here in the US, I can get a laptop with an i7 and 1TB hard drive for $899. Hell the laptop I bought 2 years ago has an i5 with a 750GB hard drive and that cost me $650. I know that the Surface has an SSD drive but there's really no reason for the cost of them to be so high. Like I said for what they are asking for Surface pro tabs, one could buy a laptop or convertible notebook pay less and have better specs than a Surface or Pro....Just my 2 cents though....

Yes I understand your point about laptops, but I am talking about ultrabooks. And I also said in the european market where electronics prices can vary greatly compared to US prices.

Still Overpriced.. Another failed attempt to clear the stock.

"failed attempt"? Haha ok Anyway, MS has had similar markdowns on the SP3 since its debut last year. The device is doing extremely well. I hope that rash goes away.

I bought it when it was $150 off about a month ago... I don't regret it for a second. (i5 256gb)
