Microsoft's entry-level Surface Go variant is cheaper than ever after a discount of over $100

Microsoft's entry-level Surface Go variant is cheaper than ever after a discount of over $100
Microsoft's smallest and lightest tablet yet is obviously not as powerful as the oft-discounted 12.3-inch Surface Pro 6, but since it typically starts at a more reasonable $399 price, the 10-inch Surface Go has rarely offered first or third-party buyers any massive savings. 

That changes today with a killer Rakuten deal on the entry-level 4GB RAM/64GB storage configuration, which can be purchased (for a presumably limited time only) at a marked-down price of $296.65. Don't fret if you see the 2-in-1 detachable tablet computer listed at $349, though, as you'll also need to apply the "SAVE15" coupon code in your cart before checkout to score the full $103 savings.

Technically, this is not the highest ever discount available for a specific Surface Go model, but for once, you can get the cheapest variant at an outright irresistible price from a reputable seller. By the way, your orders and deliveries will be handled by Beach Camera rather than Rakuten directly, although you probably have nothing to worry about whatsoever when it comes to the condition of the deeply discounted Windows 10 tablets and their warranty terms. You don't need to pay any shipping fees either, but various taxes will apply in certain states, bringing your total costs up to around $310.

That's still pretty cool for such a versatile and productive gadget (with no keyboard cover or Surface Pen included, though), packing Intel Pentium Gold processing power, as well as a reasonably large battery rated for up to 9 hours of autonomy on a single charge in continuous video playback time. 

The Surface Go also comes with a sharp "PixelSense" display sporting 1800 x 1200 resolution, a USB Type-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack, microSDXC card reader, 8MP rear-facing autofocus shooter, and 5MP front-facing camera with Windows Hello facial authentication technology.
