Microsoft is having a nice Spring sale at its retail and online store. Key deals include $100 off Core i5-based Surface Pro 4 models, big savings on the Dell XPS 13 laptop, and 2 free games with select Xbox One purchases.

Note: Since this is a Microsoft Store thing, I’d imagine the savings are geo-limited, possibly to the U.S. and Canada only.

You can find all of the Spring deals on this one page. But the three that stand out to me are:

Surface Pro 4

The Intel Core i5 versions of Surface Pro 4—including the sweet-spot i5/8 GB/256 GB version—are all $100 off. So pricing is $899 to $1199 for these versions. Remember: Surface Pro 4 comes with a Surface Pen, but you will need a Type Cover, which will set you back $129.99, or $159.99 for the version with the Fingerprint ID sensor. (And the Type Covers are not on sale.)

Dell XPS 13 9350-1340SLV

This Dell XPS 13 is $685.31 on sale (normally $999.99), and offers a 13.3.-inch 1080p “Infinity” display, 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of SSD storage, and a rated 11 hours of battery life. Note that the higher-end XPS 13 models are not on sale.

Xbox One

If you buy a select Xbox One console or bundle, you will now get two free games too. (One of those games is Grand Theft Auto V, while the other game is presumably whatever comes with the Xbox.) Prices range from $349 to $499.
