Microsoft has a few tidy savings on the Surface Pro 4
Alongside a rather generous offer on the Huawei MateBook, the Microsoft Store is also dishing out the savings on a few of Redmond's own 2-in-1 slabs. Several configurations of the Surface Pro 4 can currently be snapped up at discounted rates, which also arrive with $25 worth of credit for apps and games to get new owners up and running.
The market for the tablet-notebook hybrid is one that Microsoft partially forged with the original Surface. Users can take advantage of the PixelSense display when they'd like tablet features, but can readily morph the device into a makeshift laptop courtesy of the Type Cover with in-built keyboard.
The variation of Surface Pro 4 models on offer ranges from the basic up to the most powerful. There's Intel's 6th-gen Core m3 processor with 4 gigs of RAM and a 128 GB SSD -- all for the sum total of $699 ($100 off). Those seeking a little more bite may be enticed by the Core i5 version, which has gotten a nice $200 saving and is down to $799. The Core i7 edition with 16 GB RAM and 256 GB storage now costs $1299 ($200 off), and there's another $200 saving on the Core i7 variant with 256 GB storage and 16 gigs of RAM -- now at $1499.
Students can also snag a further discount of 10 percent on that price, and it's fair to say that the Surface Pro 4 -- particularly that entry-level model -- is very much suited to the college / university demographic.
So, with Huawei and Microsoft slates on the table, which takes your fancy? Let us know in the comments whether you'll be taking advantage of these current offers.
