Surface Pro 3 and Microsoft Band 2 get their prices cut this weekend at the Microsoft Store
The online Microsoft Store is currently running a holiday sale on both the Surface Pro 3 and the Microsoft Band 2. The sale runs through the end of the weekend, which means that you don't want to procrastinate before firing up the Microsoft Store's web site. Last year, the Surface Pro 3 was a major hit for Redmond and was one of Time Magazine's Top 25 new inventions for 2014.

The 128GB Surface Pro 3, powered by the Intel Core i3 chipset, is usually priced at $899. Through Sunday, you can pick up the slate for just $599. The $300 discount provides buyers with a 33% savings. The optional Type Cover, which turns the Surface Pro 3 into a laptop by adding a physical QWERTY keyboard, can be purchased for just $70. That is a $59 or 46% savings from the usual $129 price. Also on sale is the 64GB Surface Pro 3. Discounted by $100 or 25%, the slate is priced at $399.

The new Microsoft Band 2 wearable is also on sale. Normally $249.99, you can save $50.99 this weekend, paying just $199 for the wearable. The Band 2 will track your heart rate, your golfing, running, cycling and more. It pairs with iOS, Android or Windows handsets, and allows you to read emails, texts and your calendar entries.

These deals are available only from the online Microsoft Store. If interested, you can click on the sourcelink.

Not Bad, But A 2014 i3 Just Isn't What I'm looking For.

Yeah, you looking a 2015 A9X, right? You're better off with the 2014 Core i3

No I Don't Like The iPad Pro I Think It's Stupid, The A9X Is Powerful But It's No i7, Which Is The Version Of The S Pro 3 I'd Be Interested In If It Was On Sale And Not The i3 Version. Question, Why Assume I'd Want An Apple Product? I'm Not Even A Fan.

The A9x is powerful but it ain't no i3. No where near as capable.

Actually, that's not true, in pure performance, it can match the low voltage i3 with ease, but it's not x86, which can run Windows, so it doesn't matter. But yeah, I will not look at low voltage i3s, low voltage i5s are more of my cake.

With both running fp32? Not even close. ARM cores run fp16 and you are comparing to fp32 Intel half the work twice the speed or half the speed for the same work an intel processor does. Mobile devices don't need full precision so they have gone with up-engineered half precision.

Overpriced Surface tablets. Good deal on the Microsoft Band.

Overpriced? Please, I purchaced a SP3 i7 256GB version with 8GB of RAM, I paid ~$1500, and it was well worth every penny. I use it as a both a laptop and a tablet frequently.

I agree 100%. I bought the SP3 i5 128GB, 4GB of RAM for ~$1100 and love how capable it is no matter how I use it. There's been nothing to slow it down. But I will be picking up another type cover for it while the price is slashed

As opposed to an over priced iPad pro? Got a cube i7 stylus running core M broadwell for $350. Been a great machine but nowhere near as nice as a surface pro.
