We've praised Microsoft's Surface devices for a while now, and you can save a bundle on one right now thanks to a sale. Buying directly from Microsoft, you can get up to $250 off the Surface Pro or Surface Book of your dreams. These prices match the sales we saw at the end of 2016, making this the best time to buy before the next wave of Surface devices debuts some time this year.
First up is a discounted Surface Pro 4. The only device that has a substantial discount is the entry-level Core m3 device. It's worth noting that you save $200 on the version with a pen included, making it only $699. Contrast that with other pen-enabled tablets, and you're looking at closer to a $1,000 out the door. Remember that Surface Pro 4 basically requires a Type Cover keyboard, which is still $129 extra.
Without a doubt, the best savings can be had on the Surface Book. The sale price shaves $200 off the entry-level version, making its price a more palatable $1,299. If you need more oomph from your computers, spring for the i5/256/Nvidia GPU version, which is $1,649, down from $1,899. Either way, this gets you much more value alongside the high quality design and build you normally get from a Surface.
