As we are nearing the potential launch of a new Surface Book, Microsoft is tweaking its offerings of the original Surface Book device. Redmond is cutting the price of some of the entry-level models of the device, and it’s also cutting the 1TB model.

If you are looking to get an original Surface Book, you can now get the 128GB variant with Intel’s Core i5 processor for $1,349 and the 256GB variant with the Core i5 for $1,549. That’s $150 off for both of the variants.

The 1TB model of the device is completely gone now, which means you can only now get a max of 512GB of internal storage on the Surface Book, reports Thurrott.

Microsoft is cutting the prices of the original Surface book and even removing one of the models at this point isn’t surprising. The company is expected to introduce a new Surface Book device later this year, possibly sometime in October which is likely why it’s now offering discounts on the current Surface Book. While this might be a longshot, I think we might see a new Surface Book on the 26th of October — that’s because Microsoft’s original Surface Book (along with the Pro 4) went up for sale on October 26, 2015, and the company also held its big Windows 10 event for the Creators Update on October 26, 2016. This is pure speculation, by the way.

You can get the original Surface Book from the Microsoft Store here if you’re still interested.
