(Information Week) – With Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 hitting stores this Friday, it seemed like only a matter of time until Microsoft began discounting its older Surface Pro 2. Heading into this week, some Pro 2 configurations actually cost as much as comparably built Pro 3 models.

Sure enough, the company slashed prices this week across the Pro 2 range by between $100 and $200 in its online store. If you’ve been on the fence about a Surface Pro 2, the device is more affordable than ever.

Whether Microsoft’s second-gen Pro is affordable enough is still debatable, however. The base model offers a 64-GB SSD, 4 GB of RAM, and a fourth-generation Intel i5 processor for $799. That’s $100 less than before, but Type Cover keyboards are still sold separately, for another $130. Though $930 isn’t anyone’s idea of a budget-friendly laptop, the lower cost might be tempting for on-the-go professionals who want a capable device with a small footprint.
