Redmond cut the prices of its Surface RT slates by $150 back in July, which resulted in the units being available at $349 for the 32GB version and $449 for the 64GB model.

Now the company is offering refurbished models of its first ever tablet at even lower prices. The 32GB refurbished Surface RT model comes with a price tag of just $299, and the 64GB flavor can be had for a slightly higher amount — $349 to be exact.

And in case anyone is wondering whether a refurbished model is significantly inferior to a brand new one, Microsoft explains the difference between the two on its official website:

“When you buy a refurbished Surface tablet, you’re getting a solid piece of Windows-based technology that’s been carefully examined and meticulously refurbished by our expert staff. All returned Surface tablets are tuned up and re-flashed with the latest software versions and apps, so they’re as fresh as the day they were originally built. It includes a one-year limited warranty.”

In other words, there should be no concern of any kind if you decide to go for a refurbished unit. These are thoroughly examined and checked for quality, as Microsoft put it.

Plus, these units do come with a free version of Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 RT installed.

The technology titan is said to be readying the second-generation Surface tablets, and quite obviously wants to clear out the current inventory as much as it can before the refreshed lineup arrives on the store shelves.

    They need to have some similar deals when the new ones come out. Microsoft should keep the price pretty low at least until Generation 3.
