Surface Pro 4 is Still Available, Now $100-$200 Off

With Microsoft launching a new Surface Pro today, most previous generation Surface Pro 4 models are predictably already available at a nice discount.

The savings vary by model:

Surface Pro 4 with Intel Core m3, 4 GB of RAM, 128 GB SSD. Now available for $699, which is $100 off the normal pricing.

Surface Pro 4 with Intel Core i5, 4 GB of RAM, 128 GB SSD. Now available for $849, which is $150 off the normal pricing.

Surface Pro 4 with Intel Core i5, 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB SSD. Now available for $999, which is $200 off the normal pricing.

Surface Pro 4 with Intel Core i5, 16 GB of RAM, 256 GB SSD. Now available for $1399, which is the same as the normal pricing, so skip this one.

Surface Pro 4 with Intel Core i5, 8 GB of RAM, 512 GB SSD. Now available for $1399, which is $200 off the normal pricing.

Surface Pro 4 with Intel Core i5, 16 GB of RAM, 512 GB SSD. Now available for $1799, which is the same as the normal pricing.

The sweet spot here, as always, is that Core i5/8 GB/256 GB model, which is now $200 off at $999. That is the one I would buy with my own money.

Note, however, that you will still need to buy a Type Cover, for $129 to $159, depending on which one you choose.

Looking over new Surface Pro pricing, it appears that each model costs the same as the comparable previous generation model. However, these new devices do not come with Surface Pen.

    Does anyone have any experience with the i5 4GB model? This would be used as a browser (mostly) machine by my wife. It is to replace the Surface 3 which is extremely slow at everything.

      I actually have the base model SP4 and it works flawlessly. Not as fast as a Surface Book, obviously, but pretty darn close. I love how the base model is thermal-cooled, as well, that helps with battery life and stability of the hardware components, imho. I'd say, go for it! I got my SP4 at Best Buy a month ago (brand new, holiday sale) for nearly $400 off! The tablet-first form factor is important to me as an artist and note taker.

      I gave my brother the Core M3 4GB Pro 4 that I won. It's performant on normal tasks like browsing and haven't had any hiccups on it with running Office.


      My brother is a teacher, and he says he's had no issues with it, he even uses it to tutor with while screen sharing and its able to hold up with out any slow down.


      So for normal people use I guess the i5 with 4GB for browsing would be fine, provided they don't use loads of tabs or heavy websites.

    And these old ones include the pen, so that's another discount depending on how you value it.

    I just don't get it - the NUMBER ONE complaint about the Surface line has been the refusal to include the keyboard in the box, despite the fact it is nearly useless without it, and what does Microsoft do - it doubles down and eliminates the Surface Pen, effectively raising the retail price by $100 across the board - NOT selling the new one for the same price...so Apple...
