Microsoft Surface Pro 5 and Surface Go bundles score massive discounts at Best Buy
Microsoft might not be the world's most popular tablet vendor, but when it comes to productivity and versatility, you probably know you can't do any better than a 2-in-1 Surface device running Windows 10. The problem is 2018's high-end Surface Pro 6 is not exactly affordable, even at a cool discount of up to 300 bucks.

But bargain hunters may also want to consider last year's humbler and smaller Surface Go, as well as the 2017-released Surface Pro 5, both of which are on sale at essentially unbeatable prices for a limited time at Best Buy. Interestingly, the two can be purchased for the exact same price of $549 with productivity-enhancing Type Covers included, scoring overall discounts of $130 and a whopping $410 respectively.

Normally available for as much as $959 in combination with a black keyboard, the fifth-gen Surface Pro variant on sale here packs an Intel Core m3 processor, as well as 4 gigs of memory and a speedy 128GB solid-state drive. That's hardly the most powerful configuration on the market, but you may also want to keep in mind that $549 barely gets you an entry-level iPad Air (2019) model with 64GB storage and no keyboard. The Surface Pro 5 sports a larger 12.3-inch screen with an impressive 2736 x 1824 resolution, and it even supports external storage expansion via a microSD card slot.

As for that Surface Go version on sale at $549 bundled with a platinum Signature Type Cover, you're also looking at 128 gigs of solid-state storage, but actually paired with a heftier 8GB RAM. Once again, the Intel Pentium Gold chip running the hardware show is far from a powerhouse, but given the very reasonable price of this particular bundle, it's definitely fast enough for day-to-day computing tasks.
