Admit it, you procrastinated and waited so long for the perfect holiday tech deal that you’re now suddenly running out of time to get your special someone an impressive gift earning you unlimited free passes for guys’ nights out and forgotten anniversaries in the new year.
The good news is it’s still not too late. But obviously, it will be soon enough, so you may want to order something off Microsoft’s “Holiday Super Sale” inventory ASAP. Yesterday would be a great time to complete your last-minute Christmas present/bargain hunt.
Now, we know what you’re thinking. How in the world is a $1,300 Surface Pro 4 a bargain? Well, it’s the Intel Core i7/256GB SSD/8GB RAM configuration you’re looking at here, bundled with a black Type Cover keyboard.
Normally, the versatile and super-powerful tablet/laptop hybrid package costs a whopping $430 more, so yeah, despite the extravagant price tag, this is a solid last-minute holiday deal. The same goes for a few other Surface Pro 4 variants combined with Type Covers, featuring 16GB RAM, Core i7 processing muscle and between 256GB and 1TB solid state storage, themselves discounted by a cool $429.99 off list each.
Then you have the even beefier and costlier Surface Book convertible laptop, available starting at $1,300 (down from $1,500), and with up to $400 savings in a trio of ultra-high-end versions. Don’t forget about renewed $450 Acer Liquid Jade Primo and $650 HP Elite x3 bundle offers either, or the crazy affordable $100 AT&T Microsoft Lumia 640 XL Windows 10-ready phone.
