Microsoft originally stated the $100 Surface Pro price cut would last from Aug 4 – Aug 29th. However, as widely expected, Microsoft has made the price cut permanent.

- $40 USD off Touch Covers – Touch Covers will now start at $79 USD, Limited Edition Touch Covers will now start at $89 USD
- $50 USD off Surface RT bundles – Surface RT bundles will now start at $399 USD
Microsoft provided a statement to Neowin:
The customer response to recent Surface pricing and keyboard-cover promotions has been exciting to see, and we are proud to begin rollout of Surface Pro, Touch Cover and Surface RT bundles at even more affordable prices starting 29 August. People who buy Surface love Surface, and we’re eager for more people to get their hands on this incredible device.
I’m waiting on a statement from Acer’s CEO, we’ll keep you updated. 😉
