In an offer that’s exciting for all, Microsoft has decided to put forward its Surface RT bundles, the Pro and Touch Covers at discounted rates. As per recent reports, consumers can now grab the Surface RT bundle, including both the Surface RT and a black Touch Cover with a slashed $50 in its cost.

Getting light on users’ pocket, the discount goes in effect on 30th August. Consumers can grab 32GB version of the bundles at $399 (£257) and 64GB version at $499 (£321). The Touch Cover will cost $79.99 (£52), lowered from $119 (£77).  

Starting on 4th August, Microsoft has already lowered down the cost of the Surface Pro by $100 (£75) in the U.S and other countries.

However, Microsoft has not yet confirmed the reduced rates.

This move by Microsoft is seen as a way to lure consumers, ahead of Apple launching its iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2. Nevertheless, there’s also Google Nexus 7.2 in line that comes in competition with Microsoft’s Surface.

The stir about Microsoft’s keenness to offer discounts could be seen as a way to entice all tech savvy buyers towards its products in lieu of Google Nexus 7.2, Apple iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2.
