Black Friday deal alert for those that do. If you live at a location that has a Micro Center store nearby, and want to get your hands on a Surface RT at a downright amazing price, then this one is for you.
The US retailer has just announced that it is selling the Surface RT tablet for $179. This Black Friday deal is valid just for today, and includes a Touch Cover accessory.
Microsoft, along with several of its retail partners like Best Buy have put up the original Surface slate for prices starting in the $199 range and up, making the Micro Center promotion the absolute cheapest price for the Surface RT tablet.
Obviously, a deal this good is rarely without a catch. And the situation here is that this promotional pricing is only valid for in-store purchases — the retailer is not accepting online orders.
Buyers will need to head over to one of the 23 Micro Center locations in the US. By the way, the stores open up at 8 AM in their respective time zones, and the company indicates that it has stocked each store location with at least a 100 units of the Windows RT powered slate.
So if you are in the mood to buy one, and more importantly, live nearby, then you just may have a chance. Otherwise, the $20 or so discount is not really worth it if you have to travel long distance.
