It’s Christmas all over again for admirers of Microsoft’s 2-in-1 detachable Surface tablet family, as Best Buy charges a measly $699.99 for the lowest-end Pro 4 configuration today only.

Okay, perhaps “measly” 700 bucks is a bit of an exaggeration, but we’re talking a convertible Windows 10 computer here that typically sets you back $900… by itself. Best Buy also throws in a free productivity-enhancing keyboard, aka Type Cover, worth an additional Benjamin.

Overall, you’re therefore looking at significant $300 savings, compared to just a $100 Surface Pro 4 discount offered for 128GB Core i5 variants both at the official online US Microsoft Store and third-party retailers like the one we applaud here today.

And no, you’re not sacrificing much. The Core m3 processor can feel a little underwhelming at times, but otherwise, you’re getting an absolute workhorse, 128GB SSD, 4GB RAM, 12.3-inch Pixel Sense touchscreen with 2736 x 1824 resolution, 9-hour battery life, Intel HD graphics 515, USB 3.0 connectivity, microSD card reader, headphone jack, Mini DisplayPort, stereo speakers, 8MP rear-facing camera, Windows Hello-enabled 5MP front snapper and all.

Granted, prices could drop further once the Kaby Lake-powered Pro 5 finally enters the picture, but what if they don’t? You know the “bird in the hand” saying.

Adrian has had an insatiable passion for writing since he was in school and found himself writing philosophical essays about the meaning of life and the differences between light and dark beer. Later, he realized this was pretty much his only marketable skill, so he first created a personal blog (in Romanian) and then discovered his true calling, which is writing about all things tech (in English).
