Barely three months after its introduction to the Malaysian market, Microsoft Malaysia has cut prices of its consumer tablet, the Surface RT by as much as RM450. This reflects to similar price cuts in the US, where Microsoft has slashed $150 across all Surface RT variants.
No official reasoning behind the price cuts, but clues point to a model refresh during its World Partner Conference on Wednesday. Microsoft is expected to refresh the Surface Pro with Intel’s new Haswell architecture, and the company has reportedly been testing the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor on the RT version.
Updated price list:
- Surface RT 32GB – RM1,099 (previously RM1,549)
- Surface RT 64GB – RM1,399 (previously RM1,849)
- Surface RT 32GB with Touch Cover – RM1,399 (previously RM1,849)
- Surface RT 64GB with Touch Cover - RM1,699 (previously RM2,149)
No changes to pricing of Touch Cover and accessories purchased separately.
