Best Buy will give you at least $200 toward the Surface Pro 3 with a tablet trade-in
If you're looking for a great deal on the Microsoft Surface Pro 3, Best Buy has a promotion that will allow you to save $200 or more on a purchase of the slate. The deal is available through Saturday. Come into your local Best Buy big box location, trade-in your working tablet and you will receive a $50 Best Buy gift card, and a coupon for $150 off the price of the Surface Pro 3.

Keep in mind that Best Buy reps know the difference between an e-reader and a tablet, so you are not going to be able to pull the wool over their eyes. Also, tablets with water damage and cracked screens will not be accepted so you might as well forget about using a broken unit as a trade.

At Best Buy, the Surface Pro 3 ranges in price from $799.99 for the 64GB model powered by the Intel Core i3, to the $1949.99 that the retailer charges for the 512GB model that is driven by an Intel Core i7. If you want to purchase the Surface Pro 3 Type Cover, Best Buy has them in a variety of colors priced at $129.99.

If you've been thinking about purchasing a new Surface Pro 3, might as well get some credit for the tablet you use now. Remember, this deal is over after Saturday, and is only available in Best Buy stores.

Just had one in my hands. Very capable machine if you require windows and are on the go. If i were shopping for a nice portable and powerful windows laptop, i would have trouble choosing between this or the Dell XPS.

I wished the new Dell XPS came with UBS-C. Anyone know when that's going to happen?

I am waiting for Surface Pro 4, if at all it will match the latest tech. I really want something very potable that can replace my laptop and still good for work.

I have the SP3 and it is in my opinion the most fantastic device ever made. It has easily replaced my laptop, and I use it for all my work and private tasks. Amazing device that everyone fawns over when they see it. And the SP4 can only be better!

Yeah, I know. I have watched countless videos and reviews about the SP3 and I can admit with you that it is a powerful device. But there some issues that were raised like overheating and average battery life. I believe those issues will be corrected with the SP4.

I wonder if they'll take my fire sale HP Touchpad flashed with Android.

If it isn't stock then you might have to return it to stock. The last time they had a promo like this I had a rooted 1st Gen Kindle Fire with a custom ROM and they couldn't find the serial number or something to enter into the computer, even though the employee admitted they didn't need it since it was so old they weren't going to re-sell it. Went home, flashed the stock ROM, went back, they took it, $50 gift card in my pocket.

SP3 is an amazing device if you work as a designer or artist. I've been rocking in the last 3 years the Surface Pro and never had any issues with it thus far. Definitely upgrading to Surface Pro 4. The only real thing missing is a GPU Mobile version, for 3D apps like ZBrush and 3DMax and so on. And for those who draw, try out the N-Trig is not as bad as people think it is. It's different from the waccom pen but you'll get a handle at it after some time

Do you use Blender 3d at all? May want to try it, it works well even on my 6yr old pc. While Zbrush is king, Blender gives it a good challenge especially with custom brushes and even (last time i check) better mem usage with high poly clay models
