With the price reduction of RM 450 across all variants, the stand-alone 32GB Surface RT now costs RM
At the same time, there is an educational promotion available to K-12 and high-education institutions in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the U.K., and the U.S.
The promotion is valid from 24th June to 31st August 2013, offering 32GB Surface RTs without a keyboard for USD 199 (~RM 600), tablets with a touch keyboard for USD 249 (~RM 750), and those with a type keyboard for USD 289 (~RM 870). Too bad the promotion does not include Malaysia.
Would you consider getting yourself a Surface RT after the big price slash? For me, I would rather get a Windows 8 laptop with touchscreen than a Surface RT as the apps are very limited. Let's see will Microsoft have another round of promotion after this.
