Microsoft takes $80 off Surface Go if you buy the tablet with a keyboard
Microsoft's smallest, lightest, and most affordable tablet to date has recently turned one, which means a sequel could be right around the corner. Of course, the company's Surface family and release schedule are anything but predictable, so we wouldn't be shocked to see said follow-up held up until next year... or canceled altogether. After all, that's what happened with the Surface Mini back in the day and the non-Pro Surface lineup was also terminated after three generations a few years ago.

Bottom line, we have no idea what the future holds for the Surface Go, but we know the 10-incher is currently discounted by a cool 80 bucks in a Platinum Type Cover bundle. You apparently have until September 30 to pick up the compact and lightweight Windows 10 slate at $519 alongside a productivity-enhancing keyboard directly from Microsoft's online and offline stores in the US, although it's probably not wise to wait very long if you're interested in this affordable combo.

You never know when demand ramps up and inventory dries up, and if there's indeed a second-gen Surface Go in the pipeline, the original model could always be discontinued. Far from a battery life champion, the variant on sale today packs a respectable Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y processor and 8GB RAM, as well as 128 gigs of speedy solid-state storage. Meanwhile, its "PixelSense" display sporting 1800 x 1200 pixel resolution is no match for the 2224 x 1668 "Retina" screen on Apple's 2019 iPad Air. Then again, the latter typically costs $500 in a 64GB configuration by itself.

For only 20 extra bucks, you can buy the 128GB Surface Go right now in a combination with a Platinum Type Cover keyboard that usually fetches $130 on its own, seamlessly transforming the tablet into a solid laptop replacement. While this is not the first (or even best) ever deal offered on a Surface Go or a Surface Go bundle, it's undoubtedly the easiest way to save the most money at the time of this writing. And you don't have to cut any corners with sluggish eMMC storage technology either.
