Best Buy Marks Down First Generation Surface Pro 128GB to $500

Paul Lilly

Sale ends on Saturday

It hasn't even been a full year since Microsoft launched its first generation Surface Pro for $900, a price tag that undoubtedly scared off more than a few buyers. When we tested the Surface Pro , we came to the conclusion that it has "more than enough power for any casual computing need," though cheaper and lighter solutions made it a tough sell. If pricing is all that held you back, take note that Best Buy is currently selling the original Surface Pro for $500 , which is $400 off its original retail price.

Finding first generation Surface devices selling for less than the original retail cost isn't exactly a difficult task, but as far as sale prices go, this is the lowest we've seen the Surface Pro with 128GB go for. It's $99 less than what Microsoft is asking, which is currently offering it for $599 with a $50 credit on

As a refresher, the Surface Pro sports a 10.6-inch display with a Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) resolution, Intel Core i5 3317U processor, 4GB of DDR3-1600 RAM, 128GB storage, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, front and rear-facing 720p cameras, and a few other items. It also comes with a stylus and integrated kickstand.

If you're interested, bear in mind the sale price is only good today and tomorrow (Saturday).
