From now until August 29, those in the US, Canada, China, Hong Kong and Taiwan will be able to purchase the high performance tablet at a $100 discount starting from today until August 29.

The Verge reports that Microsoft has been testing Surface devices running on Qualcomm’s powerful Snapdragon 800 processor, so it could very well be a matter of time before the new devices…Surface.
