Microsoft cuts Surface price by £120

Microsoft has slashed the price of its struggling Surface tablet computers.

The 32GB Surface RT is down from 400 to 279, while the 64GB model is down to 359.

The Surface tablet was part of Microsoft’s ambitious Windows 8 launch, but the tablets have struggled to gain traction despite an expensive and high profile marketing campaign.

"We’ve been seeing great success with pricing and cover promotions over the past several months on Surface RT in the U.S. and other markets," said a Microsoft spokesperson.

"People who buy Surface love Surface, and we’re excited about all those additional people out sharing their excitement for Surface with other people."
