Rumor has it that the next Surface systems is coming soon, perhaps at Microsoft’s late April BUILD conference. Now it seems the company may be looking to clear out inventory in preparation of that announcement.

Every version of the Surface Pro 3 except the entry level Core i3 model has been slashed by $100, starting with the Core i5, 128GB version, which is now just $899.

The quicker and more expensive models have received an even more aggressive $150 discount, however. That includes the Core i5 and i7 models with 256GB solid state drive, and the Core i7 model with 512GB SSD.

Microsoft has not said how long the sale will last. It could end today, or it could continue until the next Surface models are announced. Budget-minded buyers might try to wait out for an even better deal, but don’t hold your breath; these cuts are already deep, particularly on the Core i5 model.
