The rumors were true. Yesterday Staples was the first retailer to slash $150 off each Microsoft Surface RT tablet and now the official Microsoft online store has followed suit. A price drop seemed eventual once Microsoft began giving away free keyboards and then heavily discounting it for educational institutions. The Surface has been met with mixed reactions since it was first delivered, with most reviewers finding that it fits a very specific niche tablet user. But if you think the Surface will fit your needs, now is a good time to buy one.  The 32GB model starts at just $349. Screen Shot 2013-07-15 at 10.15.09 AM
