When it comes to Microsoft’s retail partners, Best Buy is one of the most important ones around. And the retail giant seems to have prepared a very special deal for fans of Redmond products.
It is ready to sell the 32GB Surface tablet for only $199.99 on Black Friday, making this the lowest price ever for Microsoft’s first ever slate. And yes, you guessed it right, this is the Surface RT, now rebranded as just Surface.
The first generation model does not come with a Touch Cover at the price above, meaning you will have to buy it separately from a Microsoft Store (or the official website).
Still, this is an amazing deal for people that are in the market for a quality tablet that does what it is supposed to do, and then some. The hardware on the original Surface RT may not seem all too dandy after the release of the Surface 2, but the functionality that this tablet offers cannot be denied.
And more so, at this amazing a price tag — it is hard to get a quality branded Android slate at this price, particularly the newer ones that just arrived on store shelves this year.
Anyway, for those interested, Black Friday will take place on November 29 this year. And while Microsoft is yet to announce any special deals, expect some massive discounts from Redmond for tablets, smartphones and Xbox consoles in the next couple of weeks.
