Here’s what you can find in the Microsoft Store in the next couple of days
Black Friday is almost here, so the Redmond-based technology titan Microsoft has prepared some very special deals on its products.Sadly, Windows 8 is not one of the discounted products, but in case you were planning to buy a new Windows 8 PC, a Surface tablet or some other accessories, this is the right time to do it.
Brandon LeBlanc of Microsoft posted an article on the official Windows blog to reveal all Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals concerning the company’s products at both Microsoft’s stores and retailers.
First of all, the first 100 Surface tablets sold in a Microsoft retail store on Black Friday come with a complimentary sleeve designed for the device. In addition, those who purchase a 32GB or 64GB bundle will get $50 (€39) off a second Touch or Type cover.
Microsoft is also offering discounted Windows 8 PCs, so you can either buy the Acer Aspire V5 notebook without a touchscreen for $399 / €310 (down from $599 / €466) or the Vizio 14-inch Thin-and-Light Ultrabook for just $699 / €545 (down for $849 / €660).
Last but not least, Microsoft is offering a 10 percent discount on any Beats product in retail and online stores. The online store will sell two exclusive products at special prices, namely the Acer Iconia W510 tablet for $399 / €310 and the ASUS VivoBook S400 Ultrabook for $499 / €388
Windows 8 is yet to be included in the Black Friday 2012 deal list, but Microsoft continues to advertise its $14.99 / €11.5 upgrade for all Windows 7 PC buyers and the $39.99 / €31 upgrade for all the other Windows users.
