It seems Microsoft is still playing Santa after successful holiday sales, doling out some attractive discounts to the Surface Pro 4 and the Band 2 immediately after the Surface Pro 3 benefitted from a similar scheme.
Microsoft has just made owning the latest Surface Pro 4 a bit easier on your wallets thanks to a $100 price cut that the hybrid has been provided with. It’s a limited period offer though and will be valid only till February 27th or till stocks last.
As things stand right now, the Surface Pro 4 range now starts at $799 for the 128 GB model featuring an Intel Core m3 processor and a 4 GB of RAM while the same with an Intel Core i5 processor is now retailing for $899.
Next up is the model with 128 GB storage and 8 GB of RAM with either a Core i5 or a Core i7 chip that is now priced $1,199 and $1,499 respectively.
The top-of-the-line Surface Pro 4 with 256 GB of internal storage and 16 GB of RAM coupled to a Core i7 chip is now available for $1,699.
All the prices mentioned are inclusive of the $100 price cut. This comes hot on the heels of a similar discount worth $100 that was meted out to the Surface Pro 3 and was valid from February 3rd till February 7th. The discount was applicable on all Surface Pro 3 models except the entry level 64 GB model that continued with the $799 price tag.
Microsoft’s generosity does not end here as the company is also offering a $50 price cut on its latest fitness wearable, the Microsoft Band 2. Here too, the discount will be valid only till February 20th, with the price till then being $199.99.
The Microsoft Band 2 happens to be the Redmond company’s latest attempt at a smart wearable and has already been acclaimed for its ability to strike a fine balance between a smartwatch and a fitness tracker.
Meanwhile, the AT&T Lumia 640 has also joined the discount bandwagon with the phone now available for just $49 sans any contractual obligations. This marks a discount of $10.99 over the original price.
While this can be seen as a play to clear stocks before the new Lumia 650 enters the scene – which is likely to happen on February 15th – the good news with the Lumia 640 is that it runs the relatively stable Windows Phone 8.1. The upcoming Lumia 650 will be running Windows 10 Mobile right out of the box which makes for a slightly scary proposition thanks to the issues that the mobile OS keeps getting pulled up for.
