Microsoft slashes 20% off the price of Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book with Performance Base

Discounted Microsoft laptops with bonus sleeves for a limited time only.

Microsoft very much positions the Surface Pro 4 and especially the Surface Book as premium laptop lines that are intended to inspire other Windows laptop manufacturers to reach for the stars. With premium style comes premium prices, at least usually.

Right now, however, Microsoft is running a promotion on the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book with Performance Base that cuts a hefty 20% off the asking price of the high-end 2-in-1 tablet systems.

The Surface Pro 4 deal not only lowers the price by a fifth, but includes a bonus Kate Spade sleeve valued at $99 thrown in for free. The one limitation on that price cut is that it doesn’t apply to the entry level $899 core m3 Surface Pro 4, although that device does still qualify for the free sleeve.

It looks like we don't have any coupons at the moment.

Pick any Surface Pro 4 at a level above that, starting with the 128GB Core i5 version and you qualify for the price cut. As such, the entry level that applies for the deal will set you back $1199.20, a saving of $299.80 off the regular price. As with any deal that involves a fixed percentage price cut, the higher up the Surface Pro 4 family you go, the more you save, with the $2649 Core i7/256GB model only $2119.20.

On the Surface Book side, the 20% price cut applies to selected models of the Surface Book with Performance Base. You don’t get a Kate Spade sleeve with the Surface Book, but the higher asking price means that the savings are even more impressive, with the top tier 1TB/Core i7 Surface Book with Performance Base shedding a hefty $1039.80 off its asking price. Or in other terms, enough saved to buy an entry level Surface Pro 4 and still have some change left over!

If you want either laptop you’ll need to act relatively quickly, with the sale running from today through to 17 May 2017, or until supplies last.
