Microsoft’s Surface Pro 6 just went between $200 to $430 off this weekend, which begs the question if Microsoft is clearing out inventory at a discount before a potential Surface Pro 7 launch in October?
Microsoft still remains the least leaked tablet brand, so it’s always difficult to assess Microsoft’s fall events accurately in advance, but I can’t help but notice that the SP6 sales is coordinated across all stores that are licensed to sell it.
This includes Amazon, Best Buy, and of course Microsoft Store itself. A Surface Pro 6 begins at $698 with Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, and 128GB storage, though the bundles differ from store to store, with different hardware mixes and different keyboard bundles too.
When it comes to a possible successor, then among the rumors we’ve heard so far is that Microsoft has experimented with Surface Pro 7 prototypes that runs either AMD and Qualcomm processors.
