That’s good enough for a saving of $150 overall, and sign enough that a newer model is incoming. Best Buy Black Friday deals are up, at least some of them, two weeks before the event.
Retailers are readying up their promotions before the November 27 and 28 timeframe.
This is the day that follows Thanksgiving in the United States, and marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season that sees heavily discounted items being made available — a lot of technology gadgets and gizmos are up for purchase for a whole lot less.
Anyway, if you’re interested in the Surface 2, this might be the time to strike.
Best Buy is offering the 32GB model of Microsoft’s Windows RT slate for $299.99, which is a direct savings of no less than $150 from the original price tag. However, the device was available for $349 in some places these past few months, in which case the discount amounts to $50.
Good enough, still.
Although the deal is live, it appears that the company has not put it up for preorder and the “See Details” button shows you the regular price. But it will be rectified in due time, surely.
The retailer also has a few other Microsoft items up for a grabs at discounted prices, and you can take a look at the full list at this link here.
Just as refresher, the Surface 2 takes care of a lot of the shortcomings of the original Surface RT tablet that it succeeds, starting with an upgraded processor and a full HD 1080p screen in a 10.6-inch package.
