ms-pro-4Maximise your Surface Pro 4’s storage with a free SSD.

The use of solid state storage on most tablet devices gives them their immense portability, simply because it’s possible to produce devices that are substantially thinner and more robust than solutions with traditional mechanical hard drives.

However, the general pricing of solid state storage means that you do pay a premium for the privilege. That can make your productivity tablet cramped all to quickly if you’ve got large files to shuffle around.

Microsoft’s current deal through the Microsoft Store for the Surface Pro 4 gifts you a 250GB Samsung SSD drive along with the highly regarded Windows 10 2-in-1 device.

The deal applies for all but the most entry level Surface Pro 4 model, which means any of the Core i5 or Core i7 Surface Pro 4 laptops is eligible. While an external SSD will be just a touch slower than internal storage, it effectively turns the $1,499 Core i5 model from a 128GB storage model to a 378GB model, the 256GB models into 506GB models, the 512GB model into a 762GB model and the 1TB model into a 1.25TB model. What you do with all that extra storage is up to you.
