After a stuttering start alongside Windows 8, Microsoft’s Surface line-up finally seems to be making strides. The big, bad Surface Pro 3 has certainly piqued the interest of the power user with its large display and robust interior hardware, and for a very limited time, some configurations of the slate-notebook hybrid can be purchased with a saving of $100. The deal is only active for the next few days, and only pertains to certain Surface Pro 3 models, but if you’re interested in picking up a Surface Pro 3, check the full details below.
The entry-level edition of the Surface Pro 3 is not a part of this promotion, presumably because it’s cheap enough already, but the rest of the family is subject to $100 off until Saturday. As a further sweetener, all variants of the slab will come with a free protective sleeve, and this particularly offer not only encompasses the very cheapest Intel Core i3 model, but will also run through until April 5th 2015.
So, if you’re in the hunt for a tablet that can also double up as a worthy notebook, then the Surface Pro 3 with Intel Core i5 or i7 processor can be snapped up for $100 less than the usual asking price. It’s quite a healthy saving, and if you’ve been sitting on the fence considering the acquisition of a Surface Pro 3, then this promotion should tip the balance.
The software company entered the tablet game quite late in the day given its presence with Windows, but after a decidedly poor start in the marketplace, the acclaimed Surface Pro 3 looks to be carrying the flag for the Windows maker. Speaking of which, Windows 10 was only recently showcased at a special keynote following up from the initial announcement last fall, and with so many exciting new features in the offing, the Surface Pro 3 and its eventual successor will be integral to the advancement of the ecosystem as a whole.
Despite Microsoft’s backtracking to cater to the still-expansive desktop following, there’s no doubt that the company remains focused on a touch-based future, and while the likes of the Surface RT are easily forgettable, the Surface Pro 3’s success is symptomatic of how far things have come along in a relatively short space of time.
You can head over to the Microsoft Store to avail these offers, and remember, the entry level Surface Pro 3 is not a part of the offer, but if you’re looking for a powerful Windows powered notebook / tablet then this is your best bet.
