Microsoft will shave up to $430 off Surface Pro 4, $400 off Surface Book this Black Friday

Still a little disenchanted you won’t be able to purchase even a lightly revised Surface Pro 5 with one of those fancy new Intel Kaby Lake processors inside for the holidays? How about the refreshed Surface Book with Performance Base? We’re guessing that one strikes your fancy, but simply feels too darn expensive.

Well, the “first-gen” models are definitely not too shabby, despite their somewhat advanced age, and at the right price, we bet you won’t give Kaby Lake or the battery life-enhancing “Performance Base” a second thought on Black Friday or Cyber Monday.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen in love with Microsoft’s in-house convertible Windows 10 tablet/laptop designs, there are big discounts coming on “select” Surface Book and Pro 4 configurations.


Between November 24 and 28, the higher-end, higher-res, more “professional” 13.5-incher shall cost $1499 instead of $1899 with Core i5 Skylake power, a 256GB SSD, 8GB RAM and discrete dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GPU, while a 128GB i5 Surface Book featuring integrated graphics is to set you back $1249 after a $250 markdown across Redmond’s “full retail channel.”

As for the 12.3-inch Surface Pro 4, you’ll be able to save a whopping $430 on a 256GB i5 8GB variant bundled with a black type cover, or $200 off the list price of a 128GB i5 4GB config. That’s in addition to what third-party sellers like Best Buy have up their sleeves, and other Microsoft-direct Black Friday deals on the Xbox One S, Lumia 950, 950 XL and numerous Windows 10 PCs.
