The offer will be available on select Surface Pro models, not including the Surface Pro with LTE, at select retailers like Best Buy and Microsoft’s online store in the US.
To celebrate Surface Pro’s fifth birthday, Microsoft will be knocking $200 off the price of the device over President’s Day weekend. The offer will be available on select Surface Pro models, not including the Surface Pro with LTE, at select retailers like Best Buy and Microsoft’s online store in the US. The sale kicks off at 12 a.m. PST on Saturday, Feb. 17 and runs through 11:59 p.m. PST on Monday, Feb. 19, so don’t waste time or you’ll miss your chance to save.
“If you haven’t tried Surface yet, I can assure you there has never been a better time,” Microsoft Surface boss Panos Panay wrote in a Thursday blog post.
The Surface Pro earned an “excellent” rating in PCMag’s review and our coveted Editors’ Choice Award. We gave the device props for its “powerful Core i7 processor with Iris Plus graphics,” “improved battery life, kickstand, keyboard cover, and Pen,” and “higher-than-full-HD screen resolution.”
“With faster performance, better battery life, and other welcome improvements over its predecessor, the Microsoft Surface Pro is still the standard bearer for 2-in-1 Windows tablets,” we wrote.
On the down side, we noted that the Surface Pro is pricey, and you’ll need to buy the Surface Pen separately, if you want one. The Windows 10 tablet is available in a wide range of prices and configurations, from the $799 base model up to a $2,699 top-of-the-line version. This weekend’s deal will make it a little more wallet-friendly.
