Microsoft launched the Surface Pro 3 tablet in May, just 9 months after introducing the Surface Pro 2.

The new model has a higher resolution 12 inch with a 3:2 aspect ratio, a starting price of $799, an improved multi-angle kickstand, and other improvements that Microsoft says make the Surface Pro 3 a tablet that can replace a laptop.

But folks who preferred the older Surface Pro 2 with a 10.6 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display could still buy one from the Microsoft Store… until recently.

Neowin discovered that Microsoft is no longer selling the Surface Pro 2, suggesting that the company has run out of stock of the older tablet.

It’ll probably be a little while before the tablet is out of stock everywhere — you can still get one from Amazon, Best Buy, or some other stores. TigerDirect is selling a refurbished model for $600 and A4C offers one for just $520.

The Surface Pro 2 may be last year’s news… but it’s still a pretty powerful tablet, featuring an Intel Haswell processor, 4GB to 8GB of RAM, 64GB to 512B of solid state storage, USB 3.0 and mini DisplayPort, and support for finger and pen input.

  1. No way I’m gonna buy one of those for $500. Talk about overpriced! There are so many better deals out there. I just picked up a Hanspree 13.3 inch T8 Android tablet from Tiger Direct for $159 for example. It can do everything I want. Sure, it can’t run Microsoft Office, but I won’t be opening any Excel spreadsheets on a Tablet anyway.

    1. Bye Surface Pro2, Don’t let the doorknob hit ya, Where the Good Lord split ya! 😀

  2. I kind of have the feeling these weren’t actually bought by anyone and are now in the New Mexico landfill hole previously occupied by Atari 2600 E.T. cartridges. ConsoleOS guys promised theese would run Android though – so theres that.

    1. They never made there goal, they said they might work on it but probably won’t unless they have extra time

      1. try and locate anyone through google search who has
        tested/verified anything they have claimed or actually delivered…..talk and videos are cheap…results require
        actual code that people can verify…..NOT excues about
        NDA’s and special licenses/trademarks!!!

    2. It looks like the ConsoleOS guys have gotten too caught up with helping OEMs sell high-end gamer hardware even though many supporters were looking for a decent desktop Android for low-spec PC hardware. This appears to be the business model they were always after, even though many hoped for a productivity OS when they forked over cash. My guess is that somebody (Microsoft shills?) kept pushing for Dufus Pro support as a means of derailing ConsoleOS as a general purpose OS.
