The Core i5 Microsoft Surface Pro Just Got Even Cheaper
Microsoft’s Surface Pro has been one of the most impressive two-in-one’s since its launch. And even though the line of product has not been updated since 2015, the Windows 10 powered tablet still holds a good spot in price performance graphs for tablets, except that the i5 variant of Microsoft Surface Pro 4 just got cheaper.
Generally, the Surface Pro with i5 Processor and 256 GB SSD goes for $1200 MSRP, and Microsoft sells it on the Microsoft Store for $1049, but the tablet is currently available at best buy for $950, almost $250 less than the MSRP.
The particular model sports a 12.3 inch 2736 by 1824 resolution display, a dual-core Intel i5 Skylake chip, a 256 GB Solid State Storage and eight gigs of RAM to power Windows 10.
Tech Enthusiasts will notice that the tablet was launched on 2015, which means it does not have the performance and power consumption improvements of latest generation Kaby Lake processors. However, considering the price, Surface beats similarly priced MacBook’s and other tablets, it should not be a big problem.
There are rumors that Microsoft may launch an updated Surface Pro with 4K display soon, so if you are interested, it might be worth the wait.
