Microsoft’s Surface Pro 2 is now a bit cheaper to own for those living in the US. Last month, the Redmond-based company slashed the price of its Surface Pro 2 line in the UK and now they’ve extended the offer to those stateside through the Microsoft Store.

The entry-level Surface Pro 2 with 64GB of storage can now be had for $799, a $100 savings over the previous $899 price tag. You’ll also save $100 on the 128GB model which is now priced at $899. Stepping up to the 256GB and 512GB varieties will net you savings of $200 with the former now selling for $1,099 while the latter will set you back $1,599.

It’s worth pointing out that Microsoft offers free shipping and free returns on all of the Surface Pro 2 variants.

The price cuts come as Microsoft is gearing up for the launch of the Surface Pro 3, a 12-inch slate designed to replace your laptop. Unlike the Surface Pro 2 that universally comes with an Intel Core i5 processor, the upcoming tablet is available in i3, i5 and i7 configurations.

Pre-order pricing starts at $799 for a 64GB model powered by the i3 chip and scales all the way up to a 512GB capacity version with an i7 CPU for $1,949. All new Surface Pro 3s are expected to ship by August 31.
