You can save an unprecedented $300 on a 256GB Surface Pro 6 at Best Buy (today only)
It's safe to say Microsoft's Surface Pro 6 is not exactly what we'd call affordable under normal circumstances, but of course, that's primarily because we're dealing with one of the world's most powerful, versatile, and productive tablets right now. For the past couple of months, we've also seen the Windows 10-based 2-in-1 detachable computer frequently sold for much less than its "normal" price in various configurations, with or without accessories included.

The latest special offer available from the official Microsoft US e-store takes up to 200 bucks off select Surface Pro 6 models until March 20, but if you're quick, you can save even more over at Best Buy on a variant typically fetching $1,199. This is currently up for grabs from the Redmond-based tech giant at $999, while Best Buy's "deal of the day" lets you save an additional Benjamin.

For $899, you get a whole lot of processing muscle, thanks to an Intel Core i5 chipset of the 8th generation, alongside 8 gigs of memory and a generous 256GB solid state drive. You have less than 24 hours to pull the trigger at the full $300 discount, and you can choose either a black or platinum paint job for this stunning 12.3-incher with a sharp PixelSense display, large battery, stereo speakers, 5MP front-facing camera, 8MP rear shooter, full-size USB 3.0 port, microSDXC card reader, and headphone jack.

Naturally, the $899 price does not include any optional accessories, so you'll have to spend an extra $160 on a Signature Type Cover keyboard and around $100 on a Surface Pen. It's worth pointing out that Apple's comparable iPad Pro 12.9 configuration doesn't come with a keyboard or stylus either, setting you back $999 with only 64 gigs of internal storage space. So, yeah, all things considered, this Surface Pro 6 model feels like an outright steal.
