Microsoft Surface Pro 3 gets a major cut in cost

The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 has received a major cut in cost just 2 months after its arrival in India. The premium tablet is now available via Amazon at Rs 58990 for a limited period of time.

Unfortunately, the brand hasn’t specified how long the offer window for this deal will last. To recall, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 was unveiled alongside the Surface Pro 4 back in January this year. The former was priced at Rs 73990 at launch, so the new cost marks a Rs 15000 plunge in value. There’s no specific reason given for this reduction.

The device is additionally almost 2 years old, a point working against it given the plethora of newer tablets which can be snapped up in India now.
