expiredMicrosoft Surface Pro: $500 shipped, Surface RT (pre-owned): $220 shipped

Update: You can get the same deal over at Microsoft Store plus a $50 credit at

Best Buy has just knocked $400 off the original price of the 128GB Microsoft Surface Pro offering the tablet for just $500 shipped. While we have seen the price dropping on these slowly since the Surface Pro 2 launched, this is about the lowest we’ve seen from a trusted retailer. This brand new Surface Pro is $80 better than Amazon’s current price and lower than many used listings.  It runs Windows on a 3rd gen Intel Core i5 processor and features a 1920 x 1080 10.6-inch display, 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio, front and rear-facing 720p HD video cameras, Wacom tech, and a stylus. It has a 4.3/5 star rating on Amazon. There’s more than enough savings on today’s deal to pick up a keyboard, case or cover.

We’ve also spotted a pre-owned 64GB Microsoft Surface RT for $220 shipped. That’s about half the price of the new listings and the lowest pre-owned price we can find. It features 64GB of storage, front and rear-facing 720p HD video cameras and a 1366 x768 10.6-inch display.
